School Year at Sea
Expected to Launch September 2024
Following the summer Wilderness Survival Training and Sailing Courses, we introduce the opportunity for 11th graders to travel an entire school year at sea.
Traveling aboard a sailing vessel offers an environment that positively challenges students with situations and routines that only can be mastered through cooperation, teamwork, trust, personal responsibility, confined personal space, and continual physical and mental demands. Success depends on everyones contribution; everyone aboard a vessel has responsibilities that impact the wellbeing and productivity of the entire crew and voyage.
The depth of maritime knowledge and skills is voluminous. An advantage for students is the diversity of knowledge and skills for which they can gain greater competency if they demonstrate an interest and proficiency in any particular subject. Below is a summarized list of the topics and skills to which students will be exposed.
Out of the one hundred 10th grade students, twenty of them that meet the criteria will be chosen as candidates for the Year at Sea program.
