A+ World Academy is a boarding school that helps prepare students in grades 10 to 12 for university.

Our tailor-made course program and combination of relevant academics and real life impressions forge a deeper understanding of the academic material which is only possibly with a truly global campus.

A+ World Academy offers 10 AP courses, and 7 additional courses of the highest quality. Our Signature Program differentiates our school and our students. Through the A+ experience, our students will rank at the very top of every college, university and job market candidate’s list.
> Global Insight
Our world is undeniably smaller than it was only a generation ago. The four corners of the world will continue to become more closely intertwined through new technology and innovations within the field of communication. Still, digital connections will never replace the physical experience of being present in the moment and will never replace the time given to the sharing of ideas and dreams together with other people in real life and real time.
Sailing around the world, coming face to face with remarkably different cultures, A+ students visit 20 ports and learn to understand and to accommodate similarities and differences. In the same manner as Magellan or Marco Polo who travelled the globe centuries ago, A+ students evolve as global citizens with the insight and competencies that we will all need and demand from our next generation of global leaders.
> Personal Development
We are committed to engaging students with the real world, encouraging thoughtful reflection and creative approaches to improving the world in which we live.
The shipboard environment presents real-life political, social and environmental choices. Learning to make good choices is a lifelong tool. At A+ World Academy we never miss an opportunity to encourage our students to examine their choices and the ethical options that they might exercise.
Our campus is unlike any other. The shipboard environment is a dramatic catalyst for personal development. With a world-class tall ship as our campus, students learn teamwork and decision making through experience. They develop global networks and mature as people, giving them a deeper understanding of real leadership. The A+ combination of high quality academics and personal development will be essential in the next generation of global leaders.
“It has revolutionized our daughter’s look on life. It has not only been the adventure of a lifetime but a spiritual experience which has enhanced our daughter’s appreciation, and awareness of the value and beauty of small things, and the importance of respect and responsibility.”
