Traveling School days are structured but not routine
Every day at The Traveling School is different. Days are filled with academics, travel, conversations with local community members, outdoor adventures, community service projects and more. The Traveling School carefully tracks academic hours for each class whether a sit-down lecture, a historic tour or a guest speaker. You aren’t just going to school, you are living it, and each morning starts with a whiteboard schedule.
Students are involved in each portion of the day from helping prepare meals, to cleaning up campsites to packing and moving group gear. A day at The Traveling School means being community oriented, flexible and engaged.
Your daily schedule might look like this:
Sunrise yoga at the campground
