Grand Classroom

Grand Classroom is a travel organization based in Virginia that organizes experiential educational programs for students. In addition to the important character-building aspects of student travel, the participants are exposed to a constant stream of interactive lessons in science, history and conservation.

Students working with Grand Classroom are outside the majority of the trip, and learn by hands-on experience with docents and expert guides. In this age of cell phones, computers, television and video games, the staff of Grand Classroom believes that students benefit greatly from education combined with movement and outdoor activity. The trips go to National Parks, historic cities and destinations abroad. Each adventure is customized to meet the objectives of each group.
