Perspectives Travel Program

  • Selwyn hosts annual student trips through our Perspectives Travel Program, which is an integral part of our curriculum at our private school in Denton TX, from Lower School to graduation. This is a cherished tradition at our school, providing students with unique, hands-on experiences designed to help them develop a sense of personal responsibility and self-reliance. Interpersonal relationships between the students are enhanced as they learn how to problem solve and work together while braving new adventures outside of their usual comfort zones.
  • Lower School Perspectives

    Every successive year the length of the Selwyn travel program trips increase, as do the students’ responsibilities for planning and implementing their travels. First and second grades go on a day trip within the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, and second graders also have an overnight camping trip on the school’s grounds. In third and fourth grades, students take a joint three-day camping trip to Sky Ranch, and this year the fifth grade will enjoy a week-long adventure at Camp Grady Spruce.

  • Middle School Perspectives

    Over the course of a student’s three years in the Middle School at Selwyn, they will experience the ocean near Corpus Christi, the mountains of Colorado, and the desert in Big Bend. Before each trip, students learn about the history and climate of the region. Our Perspectives Travel Program gives middle schoolers a chance to practice many important skills as they plan, adventure, and learn about the world around them.

  • Upper School Perspectives

    All Upper School Selwyn students participate in Perspectives. The Selwyn travel program opens students’ minds to new horizons, and they learn to appreciate other cultures and communities by venturing out of the classroom to experience other parts of the world.
