School trips to the USA are increasingly popular and surprisingly affordable. Your students will love exploring a country that they will in many ways be familiar with, thanks to TV and films, but may not have had the opportunity to visit.
Whatever your subject, a school trip to the USA is one that your students will never forget, making it the perfect option for inspiring in them a passion for your subject.
Why visit the USA?
The influential culture
School trips to the United States are always a hit with students because American culture is so far-reaching. Your students will have grown up watching American films and TV programmes and listening to American music. So if you’re looking for a school trip to inspire performing arts or media studies students, then the USA could be the perfect answer!
Why not discover the history of American music on a school tour of the South, from Nashville to New Orleans? Or learn more about the media in North America on a trip to Los Angeles?
The huge choice of destinations
The hardest thing about a school trip to America is choosing which of its incredible cities to base your group in.
New York is a city that always makes a great impression on students of almost any subject and, being on the East Coast also offers some of the shortest flight times.
In the South, you could choose to visit Atlanta, where your students will have the opportunity to explore the civil rights movement and its most famous figures. Or take a tour of some of the most important cities in the South, such as Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans, where your students will learn more about the country’s musical heritage.
And don’t forget about the West Coast, where you can choose to experience the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles or learn more about the USA’s fascinating geography in San Francisco.
The perfect destination for any school trip
America is a huge, diverse country and this is reflected in the variety of educational opportunities it offers for school trips.
