The Senior Trip is a long-standing and capstone experience at Veritas Preparatory Academy, where students explore together their heritage contained in great art and architecture, scientific and technological marvels, religious, political and cultural achievements in and around the Federal City, Washington, D.C. and in Virginia. Students have a chance to visit the sites and explore the ideas that contributed to the American Founding. It is an exercise in cultivated leisure, a kind for which they have been uniquely prepared. Students engage in mutual reflections on profound things, ideas and reality come together, and as a consequence they learn more deeply Aristotle’s teaching on friendship as shared experiences.
Payments toward the expense of the senior trip can be made here. The final cost for the trip will be communicated in the fall.
“The Senior Trip was the highlight of my high-school experience. The classes at Veritas Prep have knit my classmates and I close and this trip was the final stitch. Not only was our senior trip to Washington D.C. the perfect way to culminate our precious years at Veritas, but it also was a beckoning from the world stretched out before all of us.” (Jordan Diab, Class of 2015)
