Grades 5-7 Venture Off Campus for Annual Class Trips

We love our beautiful campus, but there’s a big, wide world to explore! Middle schoolers did just that Oct. 16-19, with fifth and sixth grade visiting parts of Texas and seventh grade traveling to Washington, D.C.  

Seventh grade visited the nation's capital to explore monuments, museums, and memorials. They also rafted on the Potomac River and hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail. 



Sixth grade embraced the outdoors at Camp Cho-Yeh, a Christian camp and retreat in Livingston, Texas, about an hour north of Houston. The name comes from the local Alabama-Coushatta Indian language and means “land of tall pines.” On the way, they stopped by Houston to check out the museum and zoo and volunteer at the Houston Food Bank. At Camp Cho-Yeh, students tackled obstacle courses, rock walls, zip lines, and other challenges. The trip wasn't all action, though. They also relaxed by the campfire and ate s'mores.



Due to heavy rain, fifth grade was unable to visit Mo Ranch, a Christian conference center, summer camp and spiritual retreat nestled in the Texas Hill Country. But faculty rallied to develop a lasti-minute itinerary that included an overnight lock-in, bowling, rock climbing, a service opportunity at the Humane Society, and a day trip Johnson City's Science Mill.
