“Your organization is a successful example that a child’s complete education often goes beyond the walls of a classroom. Your programs inspire hope as you have brought kids from all economic backgrounds and all regions of the country to their nation’s capital to teach them first-hand the power of American citizenship.”

Adrian M. Fenty
Mayor of Washington, D.C. 2007-2011

Educational Excellence

School Tours of America was founded by educators who wished to expand the classroom walls to the actual locations of historical significance, giving students the ultimate opportunity to experience first-hand our nations’ centers of history, government, culture and commerce.

The learning begins before the tour with pre-tour lesson plans and continues at each tour site with expert tour guides.

Your child will explore each site with trained, licensed guides, hand-picked by our staff for their historical expertise and ability to relate to students.

Social Development

There is no way to accurately describe the enormous social impact the tour will have on your child. Kids have gone on to become professionals, educators, famous entertainers, political leaders, and even U.S. Presidents.

87% of parents believe educational travel is an essential part of their child’s complete education.

Parents routinely report positive changes in behavior, maturity and educational motivation as students work toward funding their tour.

Teachers witness cultural growth in students, as the trip is often their first time away from family, meeting peers from diverse backgrounds, exhibiting reverence at national memorials, and exploring new and exciting places.

Educational travel is the only gift you can give your child that will simultaneously motivate, give depth to their classroom lessons, and will lay the foundations for their success in the 21st Century global society that awaits.

Extraordinary Tour Value

The value your child will gain from the tour is immeasurable. In fact, they will experience more on this tour than they would in two weeks of independent travel.

Hotels, Appointments and More

Our groups enjoy closer hotels, private appointments at all available sites, and accommodating travel schedules to ensure more actual tour time.

Tour Pricing

Our pricing policies are designed to help families, not punish them. We work with families to arrange payment plans, never charging late fees or surcharges.


Our fundraising platforms align the core strengths of the 21st-century student with innovative tools to ensure every motivated student can experience this life-changing tour.
