History of Thrival Academy: Oakland and Thrival Academy: Indianapolis

Currently, there is a Thrival Academy in Oakland and one in Indianapolis, which is new this year. During the 2016-2017 school year, Thrival Academy: Oakland traveled to Thailand for three months. Rustic Pathways is the implementation partner for the Thrival Academy programs. Rustic Pathways plans and implements experiential education activities in the USA before students travel to Thailand as well as during the entirety of the 3.5-month experience in Southeast Asia.
