Inside & Outside the Classroom

High School students enjoy many activities throughout the year that enrich their WCA experience. Below are just a few examples of those activities.

New York City Cloisters Museum

One of the favorite High School experiences is the all-day trip to New York City to see the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cloisters Museum. This is America's only museum dedicated exclusively to the art of the middle ages. This trip brings to life the study that our Junior class does in both history and literature.

Annual Europe Trip

St. Augustine said, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” For thousands of years, the Mediterranean Sea has played a key role in the development of Western culture. Every spring, WCA students have the opportunity to travel to southern Italy and Greece with the history department to see first hand relics of the ancient world they have been studying in the classroom.

Other experiences include visits to:

  • University Research Libraries
  • Holocaust Museum
  • National Museum of Art
