Let's Go On a Field Trip!

Just say the words "We're going on a field trip"and something magical happens in your classroom! Students are buzzing about the upcoming experience, the energy in palpable, and classroom discussions deepen.

For more than ten years we have been providing hundreds of thousands of students from Title I schools access to live dance, music, theater, and museums in Phoenix and Tucson. Arts education can take students beyond the standard classroom environment through active and engaged learning practices and is an essential component of a well-rounded education.

We Bring the Magic!

We want to make educational arts field trips a fun and easy process for teachers.

Field trip registration is ongoing. Please check the website frequently as new opportunities will become available on a rolling basis. 

To qualify for the Act One field trip program, a school must fit the following criteria:

✔️ Designated as Title I with at least 40% of students on free and reduced-price lunch.

✔️ Located in Arizona within busing distance of the field trip location (50 miles or less).

✔️ Be a public/charter school that serves students in grades PreK-12.

Please Note: We have EXTREMELY limited access to charter buses. Please use district buses if available. Act One will reimburse the cost of district buses. If charter buses are available, we require a minimum of 30 passengers.

If we are unable to give you an in-person field trip this school year, we will work with you to find

other experiences for your class such as our traveling Virtual Reality Arts Immersion™ field trip!

For questions/concerns please email: fieldtrips@act1az.org
