11th Grade

Trekkers offers a five month program that culminates in a 10-day expedition for 11th graders who are interested in exploring some form of higher education or a particular career choice after high school. The goal of the trip is to offer students the opportunity to visit a few colleges, art and trade schools, or visit directly with people who are working in a particular career field. The itinerary for the trip will be set-up along the New England/Atlantic Coast corridor.
