PURPOSE: Expeditions will offer a yearly opportunity to travel to a major city in the Midwest during the spring.

The hope is that students would have the chance to visit four major cities during their high school careers. This experience will provide an "urban education" for students - in the areas of culture, transportation, geography, and history/architecture.
