Fairfield Country Day School believes that field trips provide beneficial experiences for boys of all ages and enhance their overall learning experience. There are two types of trips that a Fairfield Country Day boy might experience during his tenure at the school: curriculum-related trips and character-building trips. All trips are appropriate for the group attending. Teachers prepare students for the activities and provide guidelines for appropriate public behavior, reminding boys they are the school’s ambassadors during a field trip.
Expanding the Classroom
Curriculum-related field trips expand upon the classroom experience and may be designed to enhance material covered in class. Boys benefit from interactive learning, and many field trips provide an interactive environment. One of the purposes of our education here at Country Day is to foster a love a learning that extends beyond the classroom; field trips are an excellent way to do that. Boys from all grade levels participate in curriculum-related field trips.
