“As our son was packing, we told him this was a trip of a lifetime, and it did not disappoint! It will be exciting to see what you have sparked in them as they grow and mature.  We are grateful for the leadership you are encouraging in our son.”Parent of Academy Student

We are excited to announce the our next expedition, and it’s going to be a blast.  Basically, we will fly into Denver and head north.  In the process, we’ll visit:

  1. Rocky Mountain National Park
  2. Mount Rushmore
  3. Badlands National Park
  4. Custer State Park
  5. Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument
  6. Yellowstone National Park
  7. Grand Teton National Park
  8. Dinosaur National Monument

The trip will still take place July 10-17, and we will fly out of Cincinnati, direct to Denver.  We will rent three Suburban-style, seven passenger SUVs, and stay in nice hotels.

The price remains $1650 per student. ALL OF THIS DEPENDS ON EACH STUDENT RAISING THE MONEY TO PAY HIS OR HER OWN WAY.

Please text or email me with your questions.  I hope everyone finds this as exciting as I do. Please share this with your parents to keep them informed.  If they want to call or text, they can reach me at 304-550-1070.
