The World is Our Classroom

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page."  ~St. Augustine

At Mars Hill Academy students have the opportunity to expand their classroom studies and explore the world around them through educational travel. From local and regional field trips to travel across the country, students grow in their understanding, as well as build community, through these unique, hands-on learning experiences. We believe the study of Western Civilization, the “Flower of Christianity,” is essential to our students’ proper understanding of the world. As a capstone to our students’ educational travel, rising seniors participate in the Grand Tour — a two-week study tour of Greece and Italy — to better comprehend our culture and examine these roots firsthand.
