The School Down Under is an innovative academic semester or year abroad program located in New Zealand for students aged 16 to 19. Our method of education is simple; we provide support for our students as they integrate the challenges presented by academics, community living, travel, and personal growth. We utilize small Socratic seminars as well as university-accredited online courses to further students’ academic development. A hands-on, experiential approach to learning is achieved through activities ranging from organic farming and building to carving, weaving, meditation, and yoga. Our classroom is mobile and changing, and the subjects we study are not restricted to course catalogs or college requirements. Travel between SDU’s three campuses and throughout New Zealand promotes self-awareness and understanding of the environment.
We want our students to be future leaders: self empowered, creative, and prepared to change the future.
