Welcome from The Head of School
Imagine the responsibility it requires, and the potential it holds, when a student goes to a class - reading some of the toughest material available - while simultaneously helping to navigate a 212 foot Tall Ship around the world.
We invite you to take part in a challenging and exciting journey of education, exploration and personal development as 60 students and their teachers set course around the world on board the tall ship Sørlandet.
Whether engaged in learning the customs of a Berber village in Africa, exploring the effects of climate change to the Caribbean, or cutting through wind and waves as we cross the oceans of the world, A+ World Academy is committed to bringing hands-on, life-changing learning experiences to young men and women that will help them reach their personal and academic potential. Our students gain a better understanding of leadership, accountability, community and different cultures.
Our high school curriculum goes beyond the classroom while also providing a rigorous course of study, suitable for university entrance anywhere in the world. The combination of academics, daily challenges, shipboard community, and port activities creates an environment where learning takes on deeper meaning and individual development accelerates. Teamwork, responsibility, independence, and resourcefulness are all hallmarks of an high school education on board our ship.
Please get in touch with Ben or Maria in our Admissions department to learn about the details of our program, and to see if A+ World Academy can be a good fit for you, your son, your daughter or someone you know.
