Each year, the Fine Arts Department hosts several trips to major cities. These Fine Arts Trips are designed to provide students with a wide variety of opportunities to experience the arts. Trips often include enjoying plays, musicals, museums, and more. Students may also earn college credit, while participating in a Fine Arts Trip, by registering and completing academic requirements and activities assigned by the instructors. See the left–menu at the top of this page for more information on a specific trip. Please be aware that Fine Arts Trips often fill up very quickly. So, students are encouraged to sign up as soon as registration opens.
