Field Trips

Like any progressive school, Island Academy firmly embraces the concept of extramural learning, supplementing traditional classroom academics with excursions into the real world where ideas are put into action, theories are tested, and history is revisited.

Properly planned and appropriately age-targeted, excursions into the community and natural environment are not limited to secondary, but extend down right to Kindergarten, and run the gamut from artistic, to scientific, to political, not only on Antigua and Barbuda, but also further afield. Thus, in the course of any school year all students have the opportunity to interact with the rich and various area of the world which they find themselves lucky to inhabit, and access the living library of the Caribbean.
