About the Sørlandet Sørlandet is a fully restored 210 foot 1927 Class ‘A’ full-rigged Norwegian tall ship that is the home and classroom for Class Afloat - a high school and university at sea. Class Afloat offers young people a unique journey of education and personal discovery.
For eight months, students live, study and sail aboard Sørlandet.
The voyage will take students to 17 countries and 20 ports of call on four continents. Students will participate in volunteer service projects in Senegal and the Dominican Republic. Throughout the course of the voyage, the young sailors become part of a close knit international community of like-minded peers, sharing experiences, developing leadership skills and making friendships that will last for lifetime.
Class Afloat seeks students who are truly committed to academic excellence, personal integrity and global leadership. The students are guided and supported on their journey by a team of professionals - experienced and passionate teachers - and a crew of fully qualified mariners.
Over 1500 students have taken part in Class Afloat’s “blue water high school” since it was founded over twenty-five years ago. The school is based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada and is fully accredited by the province’s Ministry of Education to grant high school credits and matriculate high school graduates. Class Afloat university students are enrolled with Acadia University.
