We are accepting applications for Spring semester, too!
The Woolman Semester, a semester school focused on Peace, Social Justice, and Sustainable Living is still accepting applications for our Spring 2011 semester.
Located on a 230 acre campus in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in California, our school offers the unique opportunity to live and learn in a residential community with teachers, staff, their families, and students who have all come to Woolman to do work the work of peace, justice, and sustainability. In addition to our classes and on-campus shared work program, the semester includes three week-long service learning trips: a Food Intensive, Service Week, and US-Mexico Border trip as well as a wilderness trip which help advance our commitment to experiential education.
The core courses of our program: Peace Studies, Global Issues, and Environmental Science help to reveal the interdependence of the political, economic, historical, cultural, and environmental forces that shape the issues we are facing in the world today. The challenge of taking on this work is profoundly empowering as each student learns to effect change and cultivates the leadership skills necessary to implement those changes.
For questions about the application process, financial aid, or any other aspect of the Woolman Semester feel free to contact Samantha Sommers in the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
