Our Tours

STEM/STEAM Tours

The STEM/STEAM College Tour program was developed for students to gain deeper exposure to the STEM+Arts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, + Arts) industry. This occurs through a series of tours, events and presentations coordinated between FST and the Department of Defense, participating community partners and educational institutions.

Florida Student Tours aspires to engage and prepare all our students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) to ensure our community has the next generation of inventors, explorers, innovators, artists and leaders.

HBCU and College Tours

How do you get the inside track on choosing the college that is the best fit for you?

This is accomplished by touring the top rated colleges in the US, such as Stanford, Berkley, University of Miami, Harvard and others.  Tours are arranged so that students can experience “campus life”.  Admissions specialists provide insight on how to complete applications and apply for scholarships.  Campus tours conducted by student ambassadors provide opportunities for direct interaction with enrolled students who share their personal experiences.  We even provide opportunities to sample the fare at the campus cafeteria!

Drama & Art

Teachers and students participate in exciting workshops and gain valuable career skills by working with fine arts experts. Visit some of the finest museums in the world and get up close and personal with famous works of art. Expand your knowledge and appreciation of the theater and art worlds.

American Heritage Tours

History comes to life, when students experience it firsthand. American Heritage tours become an extension of the classroom, magnifying the pages of history textbooks.  Students will hear untold or long forgotten stories of the formation of our Country that will both inform and inspire.  Tours include visiting iconic historical sights, investigating artifacts at world renowned museums, seeing the US government in actions and participating in interactive educational activities.  Our tours are comprehensive, customizable and fluid, incorporating your interests and curriculum.  Visit historically significant destinations like Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Boston, Colonial Williamsburg and the famous battlefields of Yorktown and Gettysburg.  Our goal through these tours is to have the students develop a resolve to be better and productive citizens.

Music Workshops, Clinics and Adjudicated Festivals and Performance Tours

At FST, we believe in the importance of the creative outlets offered by the arts as an important compliment to any education. Our tours offer not only real learning opportunities from industry professionals, but the opportunity to directly integrate your experiences into performance opportunities!

To accommodate performance requirements for middle and high school trips or to enhance any experiential music field trip, FST will arrange clinics, workshops and adjudicated performance festival outside of the norm. For example, we can arrange for a workshop and performance before a live audience at Preservation Hall in New Orleans or BB Kings!
