Independent Study Projects

For the past month here in Kunming 3 afternoons a week our students have met with local artists, musicians, chefs and other experts to learn skills and local knowledge. Independent Study Projects (ISPs) are a way for students to own their own education and to really connect with the places they travel. We hope that our students will continue to travel and will continue to seek out rich, rewarding educational opportunities in whatever corner of the world they end up.

Here’s a short video of the students presenting what they have learned.
