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. Act One has been working to plan in-person field trip opportunities for students. The 2022-2023 season is in process. Check back soon for offerings.  Registration opens on Monday August 29, 2022.

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 (75 miles or less)

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

Please Note: Due to COVID-19 some of our trips have been sized down for the safety of our school and art partners. We will do our best to accommodate all interested classes.  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 Virtual Reality Arts Immersion program or a virtual offering!

For questions/concerns please email: fieldtrips@act1az.org  We will respond to your inquiry within two business days.  If you prefer a phone call, please let us know the best day and time to reach you.
