How to Apply

Applying to join one of our trips is easy! Simply fill out the online application form below and pay the $30 application fee with any major credit card.

After applying, we will review your application and get in touch with you via e-mail. The next step will be a Skype interview (15-30 minutes) in which we’ll ask you questions about your background, your desire to be on the trip, and your readiness for long-term travel.

If we feel that you’re a strong fit for the trip, we’ll then make an offer of enrollment. You may then secure a spot on trip by submitting the trip paperwork and deposit.

Read the FAQ and How to Prepare and Interview for an Unschool Adventures Trip before applying.

The $30 application fee is non-refundable if you’re accepted. If you’re not accepted (or no interview is conducted), you may apply to a future Unschool Adventures program without charge, or we will refund the application fee at your request.

We automatically add all applicants (participant + primary parent/guardian) to our notification mailing list so you’ll find out about future programs. If you’d like to unsubscribe, it’s a simple click.


We traditionally offer discounts for:

  • Returning U.A. participants: 10% program fee discount
  • Siblings of current or former U.A. participants: 5% program fee discount
