10 Signs You're An Explorer Academy Student
The kids who attend Explorer Academy—an exclusive school for explorers—have been involved in some, um, unique circumstances. If at least one of the descriptions below applies to you, you might be enrolled at this supercool school. (Lucky you!)
YOU GET TO TAKE REALLY COOL CLASSES.
Explorer Academy courses cover topics such as mind-control photography, survival training, and rock climbing.
YOUR SCHOOL HAS THE MOST AMAZING TEACHERS.
YOUR CLASSMATES ARE PRETTY IMPRESSIVE TOO.
Explorer Academy students are talented. Like, crazy talented. Like, speak-multiple-languages-and-build-mood-reading-glasses-in-their-spare-time talented.
YOUR CLASSROOMS HAVE THE LATEST TECH.
Cell phones are so 2018—at Explorer Academy, your honeybee drone goes everywhere with you.
YOU’VE BEEN ON SOME A+ FIELD TRIPS.
In the span of one day at Explorer Academy, students visit an archaeological dig site in South America, a butterfly reserve in Mexico, and a fishing village in Nome, Alaska. Virtually, of course, via the CAVE, or Computer Animated Virtual Simulator, which virtually transports them to faraway places. But still … pretty cool, right?
YOUR PASSPORT GETS A LOT OF USE.
Students at Explorer Academy get to visit some amazing places IRL because, oh yeah: They live on a ship called Orion and travel the globe with their teachers.
MORE HOMEWORK? YES, PLEASE!
The homework at Explorer Academy is more likely to involve a worldwide scavenger hunt than filling out a multiple-choice worksheet. Be prepared to break codes ... lots of codes. (Hint: The answer to this one is a major landmark in California.)
YOUR FRIENDS TOTALLY HAVE YOUR BACK—AND YOU HAVE THEIRS.
Explorer Academy students frequently have to be rescued (or rescue others) from freaky situations. You know, like how you sometimes face off with bad guys in Iceland, and then they trap you in an ice cave, and then you have to use your light-up surfboard keychain to attract a rescuer’s attention? Totally common occurrence.
OK, SO YOUR SCHOOL’S NOT PERFECT.
At Explorer Academy, a mysterious pharmaceutical company is tracking students, hoping to steal a formula developed by one of their dead professors. (Wait … you mean most kids aren’t on the run from shady global organizations?)
STILL, THERE’S NO PLACE QUITE LIKE YOUR SCHOOL.
And there’s no other school in the world that Explorer Academy students would rather attend. (Take that, Hogwarts!)
