TIA students and parents enjoyed fishing and cooking together on the beautiful grounds of Catch-A-Trout in Payson. It was a nice day together exploring the fish hatchery and learning more about the various trout and other fish that are native to Arizona. Picking and eating wild blackberries and wild grapes was a favorite activity. Afterwards, TIA students and their parents enjoyed a hike along a secluded creek that leads to a lesser-known swimming hole and falls.
Academy News Field Trips
TIA Families, please join us for a “family picnic” field trip to Payson on Friday, September 16th. We will depart from the parking lot of Shepherd of the Hills at 8:30 am and carpool via parent and teacher vehicles.

We are in the process of planning out all the details of our Maryland, Gettysburg, and Washington D.C. Trip. When we get to D.C., we will be renting a beautiful home that is either 6000 or 8000 square feet. Everyone will need to bring their own flashlight for the most epic games of Flashlight Tag hosted by Billy. NOTE: This itinerary is subject to change as we finalize all the details.
