Students Celebrate the 2016 Summer with SLP Life Experiences

Tue, November 29, 2016

In the summer of 2016, students from Savannah, Brunswick and Appleton were given the opportunity to participate in one of the hallmarks of the SLP program, a summer life- experience trip. The trips are meant to build on the school-year experiences of SLP, and each trip is tailored to students’ grade levels to ensure an enriching experience.

Freshmen from Savannah and Brunswick participated in their summer experience together, starting with a tour of The College of Coastal Georgia. For many, this was a first glimpse of college and opportunities following high school. After the tour, everyone was able to wind down at Adventure Landing in Jacksonville, Florida.

Sophomores from Savannah and Brunswick explored colleges and careers on their three-day trip across Georgia to see what options might be best for them after they graduate. They toured a variety of schools including Central Georgia Technical College and The University of Georgia. At the University of Georgia, the sophomores stayed in dorms for the night to get a taste of campus living. Their Georgia stops also included the Delta Flight Museum in Atlanta and Robins Airforce Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.

Seniors from Savannah participate annually in four-day trip to Washington, D.C. The 2016 experience was no different and included a tour of the U.S. Capitol, the Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King, Junior Memorial and the World War II Memorial.

2016 marked the first year students from Appleton participated in a summer trip, and juniors enjoyed a three-day visit to Chicago. Students saw some of the best views of the city from 360 TILT and the breakfast buffet on the John Hancock Observation Deck. They saw some of Chicago’s most significant attractions, including Cloud Gate, the “bean sculpture, the Navy Pier and the Museum of Science and Industry.
