Our annual Southern California College Trip offers students an opportunity to visit colleges and universities as they consider where they might apply to school. The chaperoned trip is offered during our school's winter break. The Southern California College Trip is ambitious in its design. Some of the schools students have visited in the past include UCLA, the University of San Diego, San Diego State, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, Chapman University, the Claremont Colleges, Occidental College, the University of Southern California, Loyola Marymount University, Pepperdine University, California Lutheran College, Westmont College, and California Polytechnic - San Luis Obispo. Visits to the schools include a variety of programs including admissions tours, informational sessions, bookstore visits, and tours.
In addition, each year students in the sophomore class travel to Santa Clara University and the University of California, Berkeley for a tour of their respective campuses. This day trip is chaperoned by the sophomore class dean and our Director of College Counseling. The Sophomore College Trip is an opportunity for sophomores to explore two very different college environments, and the visit gives them a sense of what type of school they may wish to apply to in the near future.
