Why Cultural Trips?

Booker T. Washington

"The world cares little about what a man knows; it cares more about what a man is able to do"                         

Some marginalized children often lack access to extra learning resources.  Learning is not confined to the classroom but takes place in other positive environments.

These can include introductions to cultural events such as visiting the Brevard Zoo, The Liberty Bell Museum, attending a performance by the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, visiting Kennedy Space Center, or even attending the Kissimmee Rodeo.

Middle-class and wealthy families can provide these opportunities to their children.

Marginalized students may lack the opportunity to succeed

but most often they do not lack the talent to succeed.

Here are just some of the places that Aspiration Academy students

will visit for cultural and intellectual enrichment...and a bit of fun.
