Field Trips


Field Trips For Students

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 2017-2018 school year, Act One has capacity to bring more than 40,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on educational arts field trips in the Phoenix area and Tucson.

How it Works

Act One has more than 70 educational arts field trip opportunities for Arizona students who attend Title 1 schools. The 2017-18 Field Trip Schedule and Field Trip Descriptions are available below. Please check that the field trip you request is appropriate for your grade level(s) and can accommodate the number of students and chaperones you intend to bring.

The Act One Field Trip Process

If you are a teacher or administrator at a Title 1 school and would like to participate in the Act One Field Trip program, click here to download a flyer with instructions. Here's how it works:

1. View the Field Trip Schedule of more than 70 arts performances and museum tours. Choose up to three field trips you’re interested in attending with your students. 

2. Fill out the online field trip request form by clicking the black button below. 

3. Act One will contact you with details about your field trip. We coordinate reservations and details with the arts organization, pay the admission cost for your field trip, reimburse district bus expenses and send teaching materials to help you prepare students for the field trip. If your school does not have buses, Act One can schedule transportation.

4. Your school is responsible for preparing students for the field trip, securing permission slips (per your district’s guidelines), reserving district buses and ensuring that students get on the bus. Additionally, schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per field trip participant.
