Field Trips of Our Minnesota Virtual School

Bringing Lessons and Friendships to Life

Minnesota Connections Academy (MNCA) virtual school offers field trips throughout the year that are both educational and fun. From the prehistoric Tyrannosaurus rex at the Stearns History Museum and the lava flows at Lake Superior to the frontier age at Fort Snelling and the space age at the Hibbing Planetarium, Minnesota’s rich historical, cultural, and natural resources make field trips a natural fit for the MNCA curriculum.

Community coordinators, parents, and teachers arrange field trips to venues such as museums, historic sites, botanical gardens, and state parks. They even plan non-school-related outings like picnics, roller skating, and more!

School field trips are excellent opportunities to meet other parents, students, and teachers in Minnesota face-to-face, but they also provide an opportunity to round out the virtual school experience in real-world ways. Through field trips, students learn life lessons that build upon their course lessons while also allowing them to make meaningful connections with their peers.

Exploring College and Beyond

MNCA offers field trips to colleges and universities, college fairs, and even businesses for online middle and high school students so they may explore and prepare for the future. The optional Career Club allows students to learn about potential careers and explore fields that interest them, while the College Planning Club guides high school students through the college preparation and admissions process.
