Washington, D.C. Trip Information

Greetings Parents/Guardians,

For many years, Winchester's 8th grade students have traveled to Washington, D. C., with their teachers and classmates thanks to the support of the Winchester School Committee, McCall faculty, and families, this year's 8th grade have the opportunity to do the same.

This year's 8th grade trip to Philadelphia and Washington, DC will take place March 19 - 23, 2018. Registration for this trip will close Oct. 13, 2017. The cost is $1,085

Organized by World Strides in conjunction with McCall staff, students will travel by bus with teacher chaperones to D.C. for five days and four nights of educational experiences that reinforce our 8th grade history  and science curriculums. As it becomes available, information regarding the details of trip can be found on the left sidebar. At the bottom of this page you will find a timeline of events and deadlines.

While the trip is not for everyone, the majority of our students do go. If a student chooses not to attend the D.C. trip, for whatever reason, they will become a part of our Boston-based educational experiences instead. More information about the Boston-based trips will be forthcoming.

If you have any questions about the D.C. trip, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We look forward to providing students with another fabulous experience this year.

This has been educational and fun trip in the past, and we look forward to another fabulous trip in 2018 with your children.
