Short Answer

Complete the following statements with a word or phrase.


Respond thoughtfully to the following questions. Responses should be about 6-12 sentences.

Tell us why you want to spend a semester at The Traveling School.

Traveling School faculty are not trained to work with students with severe physical, emotional or psychological disabilities and/or severe academic needs. The following questions are designed to open the conversation as to whether The Traveling School can support your individual needs.

Due to the logistically complex and low-tech nature of our semesters, we cannot support weekly or recurring sessions between students and home counselors/therapists. Please share the frequency with which you see your counselor and how you anticipate coping on a semester long program without regular appointments.
Please also include informal accommodations that you regularly receive to support your learning.

Part 5: Demographic Information (Optional)

Part 6: Additional Information

If yes, you must complete the FACTS application and Personal Savings Plan by February 15th to be considered for a scholarship. Admissions decisions are need-blind, meaning that financial need does not impact whether an applicant is or is not admitted. Our Scholarship Committee reviews financial information immediately following admissions decisions so that applicants receive both an offer of admissions and their scholarship awards by March 15, provided financial documentation is submitted fully by February 15.
