SENIOR TRIP 2020 -- VERITAS PREPARATORY ACADEMY
Where do we go? Why?
The VPA senior trip is to Washington, D.C. and Virginia. At VPA, we offer the best of the western tradition in our curriculum. It is thus appropriate that our seniors, as a part of their capstone experience at the Academy, would visit the political and cultural capital of the western world. Our nation’s capital offers us numerous sites that make us more aware of what it means to be an American and a citizen of the west. Additionally, there are a lot of enjoyable things to do for chaperones and seniors alike. There is not time during the trip for family reunions nor college visits; you may arrange to remain in Washington after the trip ends, but you will need to arrange your own air travel. Contact Mr. Fink for more details.
When is the Senior Trip?
The senior trip is currently scheduled for March 11th -16th, 2020. Our plan is to leave early in the morning on Wednesday and return the following Monday evening. The senior trip traditionally starts a couple of days before the rest of the academy goes on Spring Break, and we get back in enough time to unwind before returning to school.
Who goes on the Senior Trip?
The trip is open to all VPA seniors. While we strongly encourage all to participate, the senior trip is certainly not mandatory. VPA organizes and chaperones the trip as a service to its seniors. Once again, this year’s Senior Trip Director is Mr. Fink. He and six to seven other chaperones will accompany students to Washington.
How will we get there? Where will we stay? How will we get around?
The group will travel by commercial airliner to Washington, D.C. We will stay in a tourist-class hotel, the Days Inn on Connecticut Avenue NW, because of its safe location, its reasonable rates, and its proximity to restaurants and the subway station. When in the city, we will do a great deal of walking, but our primary way of getting around will be the Metro, one of the world’s cleanest and safest subway systems.
