Island Christian Academy’s secondary students will be traveling to Washington, D.C., over their spring break.

The trip is a culmination of the students’ studies this year in American government and history.

The students will see first-hand the historical places they have read about in textbooks, including the White House, war memorials, museums, Arlington National Cemetery and other historical sites.

By completing additional coursework after their trip, students have the opportunity to earn a high school credit for their travels.

To help pay for their trip, students are fundraising and created a GoFundMe account at https://www.gofundme.com/washington-dc-educational-trip
