The most fulfilling semester of your life awaits.

The Traveling School is currently accepting and reviewing applications on a rolling basis for our 2021 Spring semester. We encourage female students ages 15-18 who are seriously interested to start the application process today. To see if The Traveling School is right for you, read our Essential Eligibility Criteria [PDF] first. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our Admissions Office with questions.

COVID-19 Considerations: If you are currently in the process of applying to The Traveling School, we understand that most schools around the country have closed or have moved to online learning platforms.  Our admissions team wants to support our applicants as you navigate this process given these recent changes. Please reach out to us for any additional information or support.  For Accepted Students and Prospective Students beginning the application process, please note that The Traveling School has made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 Fall semester. More information on this decision can be found here.  In the event that The Traveling School is unable to deliver programming for the Spring 2021 Semesters due to the COVID-19 virus we will offer families a refund of their enrollment deposits. Please see this additional letter for more information.
