The Media Academy organizes trips every year for the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Every year sophomores go to Yosemite for four days. Each student learns a lot about the environment and themselves and Yosemite offers a chance for the students to bond and get to know each other better. The seniors go to Hearst Castle in San Simeon. At Hearst Castle they learn about William Randolph Hearst, a giant in the journalism industry who built an incredible palace on the coast of California. We also attend state and national high school convention.
