A+ World Academy

  • A+ World Academy has one of the most unique high school settings in the world.
  • We give 62 students from all over the globe (+10 nationalities onboard) the opportunity to complete 11th-12th grade or gap year aboard the world's oldest fully rigged tall ship! During their time with us students learn to sail our incredible vessel, taking her to over 20 different destinations throughout the year.
  • All the while, students are studying like they would at a regular American boarding school, taking AP courses, receiving college counseling, participating in clubs, etc.
  • Our program is truly one of a kind and our students learn just as much outside of the classroom as they do within it.
  • While engaging our students academically, we immerse them in an extensive experiential education program of rigorous maritime endeavor, close-knit communal living, study in foreign lands, and personal mentoring that cultivates their self-knowledge, and leadership far beyond that of more traditional schools.
