“A person cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Andre Gide

SCVi has partnered with Bright Spark Travel to plan most of our domestic and abroad trips. Student travel, while always optional, is an invaluable part of the learning experience, and we highly encourage our learners to take advantage of these incredible opportunities to venture out and explore our country and the world. These experiences go a long way to help students understand themselves and others, and we always encourage our learners to visit a college campus or two on each trip.

Students are encouraged to fundraise for trips, which can be as much fun and facilitate as much bonding as the trip itself! All trips are open to learners of all grade levels, as well as their parents.
