"School Tours of America planned a trip for my school to Washington , D.C. which will never be forgotten. My friends and I became even more patriotic than....."
"School Tours of America remains my choice after fifteen years of student travel to Washington, D.C......."
The most common phrase we hear from students is 'this was the best four days of my life!' This tour experience allows you to sight see some of the most awesome sights our country has to offer, time to hang out with your friends, great food and shopping, and an opportunity to experience first-hand the actual history you have spent your entire life studying in books.
America’s east coast houses some of the most awesome sites and the most famous shopping spots in the world. Students may tour Times Square, the White House, the Statue of Liberty, Capitol Hill, Central Park, the Pentagon, NY’s Chinatown, and the Smithsonian Museums.
Depending on your tour, you may shop 5th Avenue in the Big Apple before seeing a Broadway play or you may be watching a play at Ford’s Theatre in DC, the historic scene of President Lincoln’s assassination.. The only breaks you will be taking will be to eat at places like the famous Pentagon City Mall, Chinatown or Hard Rock Café. Everything you have studied in school comes alive and promises to be the best time of your life.
School Tours of America offers our high school participants the opportunity to earn undergraduate college credit for your participation in the tour. In conjunction with Adams State University, you may enroll in an undergraduate college program eligible to receive 1 semester credit hour for your participation on your tour.
If you are in either middle school or high school, we encourage you to enroll in our Adams State University “Leadership Program.” This program will require that you perform certain tasks while on your tour and the writing of reflection paper at the end of the tour. Not only will you automatically be enrolled in our essay contest and eligible to win valuable prizes, you will receive a Certificate from Adams State University for your future college admissions portfolio demonstrating you completed the ASC Leadership Program on the historic east coast.
