Field Trips

Field Trips

Being a part of Brandon Academy means being a part of an interactive learning environment at all levels. Our excellent faculty and very involved parents help to ensure that our students are continuously stimulated through a variety of learning opportunities. Many of these include off-campus trips that provide our students with the chance to experience new and exciting environments and events.

Students at every grade level from PK-3 through High School participate in multiple field trip experiences each year. On average, 10-12 field trips are scheduled per month school wide. Below is a list of some of our school field trip destinations.

Check out our website calendar for dates and times. As always, students should wear their FIELD TRIP UNIFORM (BA uniform shirt and Navy Blue or Grey Shorts/Pants).
