West Island College International - Class Afloat is one of the world's most unique and interesting educational experiences. It offers high school and university students the opportunity to take fully accredited courses while sailing aboard a traditional fully-rigged class 'A' tall ship built in 1924.
Some facts about Class Afloat:
Created in 1984 as a Canadian International Youth Year programme.
Has visited ports of call on every continent of the world.
Students and staff participate in two service projects in the Dominican Republic and in our West Africa Initiative in Dakar, Senegal
Students tend to come from the top 25th percentile in their home schools and 98% of our students attend the university of their choice after graduating with us
Students spend four hours a day outside of the classroom learning how to run and maintain the ship
Students leave the program having developed strong leadership skills, an ease at working in groups, a sense of responsibility and accountability, ready to participate as an active and conscious citizen.
