Grade Level Trips

Immersion Trips are off-campus learning experiences that immerse students in the concepts and subjects they study. Each grade investigates a different part of the mid-Atlantic Tidewater region on a three-day immersion trip, conducting field research, exploring the region, and interviewing local residents to understand their history and the challenges they face today.

The immersion experience promotes environmental stewardship and, in many cases, fosters a deep connection to nature that continues long after students leave Christchurch.
Christchurch School is proud to partner with the following individuals, communities and services in its effort to introduce students to thinkers and doers and make each immersion experience more thought-provoking, meaningful and formative than the last!
