In November, 46 juniors and seniors along with four teachers from Lodi Academy went on a Southern California History Trip lead by our history teacher Tom Larsen.

This trip is conducted every other year opposite the two-week history tour which takes our junior and senior students to the East Coast. In this short, somewhat local West Coast trip to the Presidential Libraries and the Museum of Tolerance, students get to connect classroom lessons with primary sources that are valuable and authoritative. Experiences like this capture student attention and interest in American History in important and unexpected ways.
