The Pre-Trip Seminar is one of the distinctives that sets this trip apart! Families have access to 15 hours of video preparation taught by Mrs. Caruso complete with study packets on foundations, art, architecture, history and worldview.  This prepares both students and parents to appreciate the places we'll stand and the experiences we'll share in a much more meaningful way.

This eight day field study tour begins in the "Historic Triangle" focused on the Christian roots of American government and the inspiring stories of the heroes God used and the miracles He performed to allow for our nation’s birth and survival. Featuring:

  • Jamestown Archaeological Site & Jamestown Settlement Village & Museum

  • Evening Lantern Tour of Williamsburg with Mrs. Caruso

  • A day of Colonial Williamsburg Sites and Events

  • Guided Visit to Yorktown Battlefield & the town of Yorktown.

Our last five days are spent in the nation’s capital, where we continue the story of America’s development with particular attention to the individuals used by God to accomplish His purpose.  We’ll stand in the places where history turned and see evidence of the biblical roots of America.  We’ll also explore the art and architecture of the city and take note of how it reflects the prevailing worldview.  My hope is that students finish the tour with enthusiasm for their own role in history and an understanding of their responsibility to apply truth in a way that impacts the culture. 


  • Full Day at Mt. Vernon with private chartered coach transfer

  • National Archives (to view our founding documents)

  • U.S. Capitol

  • Library of Congress

  • Supreme Court
