Parents and students should coordinate so that only one person signs up. Students may sign up if their parents are unavailable.

You will need the following information to sign up for a FPW trip:

  • Student full legal name
  • Student date of birth
  • Student ID number (located in My BackPack on student info page)
  • Student Altamont email address
  • Parent email address
  • Top three trip choices (If you are signing up a rising 11th or 10th grader, trips that have reached capacity will no longer be visible on the sign-up link. There will be a place to request a spot on a waitlist. Waitlist spots are timestamped and on a first come first served basis.)

For one week in October, Altamont’s doors swing open and the world becomes our classroom. A staple of the Altamont curriculum since the late ’90s, Project Week allows students to learn through experience. These dynamic journeys range in subject matter and cost so that every student can enjoy unique educational opportunities. Recent trips have included community service in Birmingham, tours of colleges and universities in the Northeast, and trips to the Mississippi Delta, Chicago, Sweden, Rome, Texas, Savannah, Hawaii, Yosemite, San Francisco, France, Washington DC, Disney World, the Grand Canyon and many more!
