Our Story

We, at the Traveling Students Academy, believe that education is the most powerful way to change the world. Education enables us to know the world beyond our own surroundings by expanding our vision, creating awareness and -above all- develop a disciplined life. And when we combine education with travel, it creates the opportunity to learn about things that cannot be experienced at home or in a classroom.

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Even though education is conventionally segmented into disciplines and subject areas, the world isn’t, and our minds aren’t. At the Traveling Students Academy, we promote cross-disciplinary education. We believe that experiencing a different culture opens the mind to seeing the world differently and that Greece’s rich ancient history holds lessons for engineers and accounts and chemists, as well as philosophers and historians and poets.
