Trips and Travel

“Education is not a two-by-four: it should not be limited to the two covers of a book and the four walls of a classroom.” —John Dewey

Fresh air. It’s something we believe all children should get more of. That’s why learning at St. Francis may begin in the classroom, but it certainly doesn’t end there! Our Primary II through eighth-grade students gain a deeper understanding of a variety of subjects—from U.S. and Texas history to earth science and gardening—through class trips, cultural enrichment, field trips, and participation in our Outdoor Learning Experiences (OLE) program. OLEs enrich curriculum study with extensive opportunities for critical thinking, problem solving, and captivating primary-source learning. All while forging unforgettable lifetime memories.
