Middle School scholars take part in end-of-the-year visits focusing on team building, exposure to new and exciting activities, and above all else, FUN! These trips are capped off by our 8th grade visit to Atlanta, where scholars visit attractions including the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham, the Atlanta Aquarium, the Coca-Cola Factory, and universities such as Spelman, Morehouse, and Georgia State.
