King's-Edgehill School will challenge, encourage, and educate your child with teachers that are committed to being supportive in classes that remain small and personal. We will provide for them an outstanding, world-class education that will establish a sound foundation for them in academics.

King's-Edgehill doesn't just offer outstanding classroom academic structure - we also inspire athletic and artistic excellence. There is also adventure available with the many short, fun trips offered to your child to expand his or her sense of the world around them. 

Two recent trips that our students enjoyed were a yoga/surf weekend in Nova Scotia and a soccer and educational tour of California.

The yoga/surf weekend took place on Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore. We stayed at the Port Mouton International Hostel. We had a spectacular bonfire on Crystal Crescent Beach, enjoyed a BBQ, and participated in fun beach games.


Many students kicked off Saturday morning with "yoga at sunrise" and then headed out to meet the surf instructors and to learn to surf. They were taken on a gorgeous kayak trip through a series of lakes and were given beach time to enjoy some relaxation by the water. This was an amazing trip and all students were genuinely pleased with the experience and the opportunity to unwind from the business of school life.

Our Soccer Students thoroughly enjoyed their trip to California which provided students the opportunity to put their soccer skills to use and to visit Californian universities. Starting in San Diego, California, they spent a week of soccer competition and then headed off to Los Angeles where they were introduced to the famous UCLA campus. The trip offered our team some wonderful experiences: kayaking at a marine ecological reserve, a visit to the Gaslamp Quarters, a tour of Coronado Island, a visit to the USS Midway, attendance at a NFL football game and so much more.

While these two trips are new to our roster of travel options at our school, there are many wonderful trips available for our students each year. Learn about these adventures in our PhotoJournal, Oh, the Places you will go.
