What Our Students Say
I have never seen my daughter more self confident, happy and relaxed then when she came back from her TTS semester. During her four months in Central America, she got up early every day, wore basically the same outfit day after day, studied more then she had ever studied in her life, and gave up her beloved iPhone – yet she said it was one of the best times of her life.
I truly can’t imagine where I would be today if it wasn’t for The Traveling School. That semester, along with those 15 girls and my incredible 4 mentors, inspired me to never stop exploring, to feel what I am feeling, to be present, to keep learning, and to make the world a better place for others.
I discovered the power of a meaningful, rigorous and experiential education and the ability I have in being the architect of my experiences. I came away from that trip feeling more confident, empowered, and inspired than before.
