Welcome to the Kroka Semester Programs!

A Kroka semester is a uniquely transformative experience: we embrace risk, we welcome discomfort, and we experience the vulnerability that arises with challenge and interdependency. In doing so, we have the opportunity to shed the layers between ourselves and the world, and to wake up to what it is to be fully human.

We offer two semester programs for high school and gap-year students: Ecuador in the fall, and Northern New England and Canada in the winter. Students may enroll in one or both semesters. Both journeys are based on extended wilderness travel, participation in vibrant community life and an accredited academic curriculum. Students will receive FULL high school or college credit for participation in a Kroka Semester. Federal loans and grants are available.
