Shackleton Schools

After seven wonderful years of inspiring and educating young men and women to be leaders, educators, community builders, entrepreneurs, and stewards of the earth, Shackleton School closed its doors in June of 2005.

While we are all saddened to see such a powerful and rewarding educational program come to an end, we feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to develop a remarkable expedition-based curriculum that worked.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, our faculty, and staff, we thank everyone who has played a role in Shackleton Schools. Without so many fellow believers by our side, we would never have been able to bring this dream to life. It is our sincere hope that the educational model we developed will take hold in schools around the globe, so that more young men and women will have the chance to explore their potential as leaders.
