No, our trips are biennial- taken every two years.

The trips are only for academy members. A parent or a chaperone are welcome to travel with us.
+ What is the purpose of the end-of-year trip?
We firmly believe that traveling is a way to help mold healthy children. On our trips we celebrate the end of a school and session year, but we are also exposing them to new experiences that will hopefully help them in the future.

No, we are not affliated with a church. However, we are a Christian organization.
+ If my child is not a Christian can they still join?
Of course! We would still love to have them join us. Just know we do open and close all of our sessions with a prayer. If they choose to opt out that is fine.
+ Is my daughter able to have her cellphone during the sessions?
Before the beginning of each session we collect all cellphones. We want the girls to be fully focused without distraction during the lesson. If you need to reach your daughter while she is in session you will be provided the site-coordinators phone number for emergencies.
