Field Trips for Title 1 Schools

Learn more about field trips for the 2019-20 school year.



Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Metropolitan Phoenix and Metropolitan Tucson as well as nearby areas that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted bus services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.

In the 2018-19 school year, Act One brought more than 43,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on more than 88 performance field trips and nearly 170 museum field trips in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Capacity for the 2019-20 school year tops 50,000.

Quotation Mark

“[My 8-year-old student] could not stop talking about the different kinds of instruments. The next day she told the class about her own creative story she wrote about going to the orchestra and participating herself. Seeing all of the instruments on stage made her want to take up a musical instrument. The young girl turned in paperwork to join band for the following year! The symphony was very inspiring for her!”

— Margo Gooderham, Echo Mountain Primary School
Took 154 3rd graders on a field trip to Perseverence at The Phoenix Symphony
