The 2021-2022 Voyage Plan includes*:
- Kristiansand, Norway

*Sailing the world can be unpredictable; changes may occur due to weather or other circumstances that may result in changes to the itinerary.
Through excursions and field experiences, students will have their eyes and minds opened to things they’ve only ever imagined. Students will also receive recreational “shore leave” to explore each city with fellow students, providing a truly amazing way to discover people, places, cultures, and themselves while completing a year of high school. Skills like leadership, collaboration, time management, task prioritization, and critical thinking in an unfamiliar environment are an integral part of daily life, helping students to develop the skills necessary to become effective global leaders.
Safety is of utmost concern; routes are planned well in advance for optimal sailing conditions, academic interest, cultural diversity and safe exploration.
