More Information

Annual Travel: Global Connections Academy

Service • Adventure • Self-Discovery

Every year, Living Wisdom High School students embark on a two-week journey of service projects and dynamic adventures. As part of the curriculum, students engage in the planning and fundraising, learning key life skills such as initiative, team-work, finances, and organization. Additionally, the curriculum throughout the year ties into preparing the students for the trip, covering topics of culture, language, geography, and the chosen service project.

Travel opens doors outwardly and inwardly, expanding one's perspective, knowledge of the world, and inner self. For teens, experiencing new cultures can ignite a spark for service to others, exploration, and taking charge of one's life. Living Wisdom High School alumni all emphasize the life-changing impact made through their experiences of travel and service. 

Not only do these adventures offer a way to explore new possibilities, but they are a time for developing existing interests and qualities. Students may discover a deep enthusiasm or inspiration that could direct their life’s focus. They might also achieve inner success by overcoming a long-held limitation or by cultivating a new quality. Whatever the specifics, growth happens both outwardly and inwardly on these amazing trips. Comfort zones expand to encompass more than could previously be imagined. Old selves are inspired to embrace more fully one’s highest potentials. These trips are jewels in the LWHS experience.  

Students prepare for and experience a journey that is transformative, joyful, adventurous, heart-opening, eye-opening, and priceless.

In the past, students have traveled to...

Scotland • Nepal • South Africa • Hong Kong • India • Peru • Panamá • México • Hawaii • US National Parks • Italy • Slovenia • Quebec • Costa Rica

“It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how!” Wise words from Dr. Suess and in this summer camp we will teach you how to have fun both in your academics and in life in general. Many people struggle with learning techniques of how to learn. Little do they realize that, just like any other skill, learning becomes more enjoyable the better you become at it. 

Join us for a lively summer camp where teachers Hazemach and Keshava will teach you powerful techniques to make studying fun, how to gamify your approach to learning, how to develop confidence through knowledge and mastery of materials, and how to express yourself creatively and originally through any medium of pursuit.

In this camp we will teach you how to study, how to communicate your knowledge, and we’ll have a ton of fun doing it. Interspersed with our mental exercises, we will engage the body and will and express ourselves in play and sports. 

One part study-training, one part fun-training, this camp will change the way you look at learning, school, and life in general. Obstacles don’t have to be daunting anymore; they can become your most enjoyed elements of life! 

Come play, study, laugh, and have fun with us. It’s fun to have fun, and by the end, we’re sure you’ll know how.


This immersive camp will run from Monday-Friday, from 9am-4pm. Every day will include training in learning systems, effective approaches to studying, note-taking, memorization, presentation skills, rhetoric, logic, and other topics, as well as sporting games, activities, adventures, and lots of vigorous fun. 

This camp is strongly recommended for incoming LWHS students, as it will lay the foundation for how to succeed in our academic and scholastic community. All others welcome.

Keshava was a professional stuntman and stunt-coordinator in the Los Angeles Film industry and used to help teach stage combat at the acting academy, Theatre of Arts.

See what our

Students & Parents Say

“I have watched as my own child, several grandchildren, and the children of friends have gone through the experience of attending Living Wisdom High School, and I am still in awe of what happens for children there. It's not just that they get a good education and are equipped to take on whatever their dreams may be, but that they learn the skills involved in learning to be happy with themselves and others. 

The teachers never cease to amaze me as they constantly think outside the box helping each child, as an individual, learn how to live and navigate the rocky road of youth. Wish I'd been in such a school as a kid.” 

- Ken Atwell, former LWHS parent and grandparent
