Field trips at Andalusia

Andalusia is an excellent location for field trips for students of all ages.  We host field trips for pre-school groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, home-school groups and associations, and students in public and private schools from kindergarten through college.  With the wide range of resources available on the property, teachers and leaders can choose from several different approaches to provide an enriching and memorable educational experience for their students.  Field trips can focus on literature, language arts, fine arts (drawing, painting, photography, etc.), women's studies, social studies, history, agriculture, botany, zoology, geology, and more.  Teachers may even decide to cover several different areas for lessons across the curriculum or cross-disciplinary studies.  Tours of the main house and grounds can be incorporated into any field trip; however, teachers are absolutely welcome to use the property as an outdoor laboratory on their own.  We offer age-appropriate orientations for all ages, even pre-school groups!   Call us today at 478-454-4029 to set up your next field trip to Andalusia, Home of Flannery O'Connor.

Target Corporation sponsors a program awarding educators grants of $1,000 each to fund a field trip for their students.  Perhaps you could get a grant to bring your students to Andalusia!  Check out their website here for more information and let us know how we can assist you.
