IEP-Sponsored Field Trips

The Intensive English Program will periodically offer an IEP-sponsored field trip. Sometimes these trips are free, and sometimes you will be asked to help cover the cost of the trip. On average, most field trips will cost less than $20. If we are offering any field trips during the session, you will receive an email with further details on how to register for the trip.

Here are some examples of past field trips:
