Would you like to go inside the White House? Or go climb up the Statue of Liberty? How about walking through Independence Hall, where both our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written in Philadelphia? If this sounds like a fun way to study U.S. History then we have the class for you! In the summer of 2019 PAA is again offering the U.S. History Class and Tour. You will spend two-weeks in the classroom at PAA laying a classroom foundation, and then depart for a two-week East Coast tour that includes Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Gettysburg, Williamsburg and of course, Washington, D.C. If you complete both the two-week class, and the two-week tour, you will earn one full year of U.S. History credit. This will fulfill a required class, and can open up space for another elective class in your Junior year.
Tour Details and Cost
To read the full details of the tour please click on the following button:
All inclusive cost of tour: $2700. Deposit of $300 required to reserve spot in class/tour, followed by monthly $300 payments. Tuition for the summer class is $375 and due in June, 2019. Individual payment plans can be created. The tour has limited space and will fill on a first come, first served basis. Any student who registers after tour capacity is filled will be added to a waiting list. Any family that does not make initial deposit of $300 or falls behind in payments may forfeit their spot to a student on the waiting list.
Juniors must register by September 7, and make initial deposit by September 14th. By doing so, Juniors will no longer need to take U.S. History during the 2018-2019 school year, and will have a free period for an elective class or study.
Registration for Freshmen and Sophomores is open until the tour fills. It is recommended that families make their initial $300 deposit ASAP to confirm their registration, as tour is likely to fill quickly.
