Thank you for your interest in the Greece & Rome Class/ Trip. Beacon is thrilled to offer
this unique opportunity to explore the world to our students. Please complete this
application as completely, AND HONESTLY, as possible. Write neatly! Good Luck!

Some Facts:
    The focus of the trip is Ancient Theatre History study. We tour ancient theatres,
      and make the direct connection between ancient drama and horror films. Why
      do we love them? Let’s prove it!
    The cost of the Greece & Rome class/ trip is approximately $2,300.00
    The trip will happen during February Break 2010.
    Families will need to pay in full by late November. (Most students will work and
      save up over the summer to fund their trip.)
    Ms. Cimato CANNOT coordinate fundraising for this event because of other
      fundraising obligations. Each student must raise the funds to meet the cost of his
      or her own expenses.
    The Greece & Rome Class will meet during the fall term, for .5 art credit.
    At this time 2 full scholarships and up to 4 partial scholarships may be available.
      Scholarships are made available only to students with demonstrated need and
      artistic merit. You may NOT ask for a scholarship AFTER you are chosen for the
      Class/Trip. Families are urged to be honest about their needs. If you cannot
      participate without a scholarship, please say so. Scholarship does not equal
      discount.
    10, 11 & 12th Graders are welcome to apply!
      Up to 30 Students will be selected for the Class/ Trip.
      Students will be selected/notified by June 2009.
