LTS students and faculty journey far and wide, seeking educational and enriching activities beyond the Green Mountains of Dorset.
6th and 7th Grade Overnight
The 6th and 7th grade classes travel together on a yearly trip alternating between New York City and Boston in April.
8th Grade: Montreal, Canada
The eighth grade class travels to to Montreal, Canada for 3 days in April. Student input is considered when planning the cultural and entertainment destinations.
9th Grade: Washington, DC
The 9th grade class spends all year preparing for their one-week trip to our nation’s capitol in April. The ninth graders fundraise throughout the year to reduce the overall cost. Once in D.C., the students visit a variety of national landmarks, from Arlington Cemetery to the White House.
