Class of 2017 Seniors: New York City Trip

  • New York City Senior Trip - # 7964 - Offered by: School Tours of America
  • Will miss Monday, 2/13 and Tuesday, 2/14 of school - this is an excused school-related absence and will not count against exemptions for final exams.   
  • Select AOF-Class of 2017:  NEW YORK CITY TRIP INFORMATION link at top of this page to view the information on the trip.
  • Sign up by July 1, 2016 to get the lowest price for this trip.
  • The $199.00 Payment Protection Plan (PPP) is an additional cost for the trip and is automatically added to your bill unless you check the box to reject the PPP. I recommend this additional expense. If for any reason you are not able to go on the trip and pay for this plan, you will be reimbursed for everything except the program fee.
