Storylines Residential Community at Sea Announces World’s First Globally Traveling Youth Education Program
Families that want to continuously travel the world and provide a global education for their children are finding homes on Storylines’ private residence ship
In the age of working and studying remotely, Storylines residential ship introduces the first of its kind, worldschooling youth education program. Families can now continuously circumnavigate the world in their own private residence onboard with a like-minded community. It's an educational journey like no other!
The unique educational model is attracting homeschoolers, worldschoolers, digital nomads, sailing families and lifelong learners who want to share a travel adventure lifestyle with their children and raise them to be global citizens. For the families that own homes aboard the ship, their school aged children now have access to a living ‘world class education’ in which the world truly is their classroom.
While other learning communities have formed around the world to support the educational needs of traveling families, Storylines is believed to be the first worldschooling micro-school in which families live and travel the world together.
The education program consists of field trips, academics, learning pods, tutoring, workshops, classes, academic advising, clubs, physical education and mentorships.
- Field trips include studying ancient art history at the pyramids in Giza; Medieval history at the Colosseum in Rome; literary history at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London; archaeology at the moai (carved human figures) on Easter Island; and marine biology at the Great Barrier Reef.
- The onboard teachers focus on experiential learning in exotic locations around the world, hosting small group pods that learn about the regions they are traveling through in a way that incorporates multiple subjects and hands-on projects.
- The online accredited self-paced academics part of the program has remote learning teachers who oversee studies and do record keeping. Families can choose their course load depending on their needs, travel schedule and learning style.
- There are a plethora of tutors of every possible subject on board (and online), including other owner residents, older students and staff members.
- An academic advisor is also on hand to assist families with learning resources, college prep and transcripts.
- Some of the many workshops and classes available to students include robotics, fiber arts, 3D printing, creative writing and video editing.
- Students have access to dozens of clubs including chess, books, astronomy, acting, photography, scouting and culinary arts.
- Physical education consists of water sports such as sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming; and also running, biking, yoga, martial arts and racquet sports.
“Like Elon Musk’s Astra Nova exclusive school for the lucky few, Storylines is turning the idea of what a school ‘should’ look like and reinventing it for a modern connected world. While we never intended to be a pioneer for global education, Storylines is attracting families that say it’s an incredibly unique opportunity to be able to easily educate their children as part of their global travel lifestyle.” -Shannon Lee, Storylines CEO
