Memories of a Lifetime: Continuing Education's Antarctic Cruise Continues

Participants in the Antarctic cruise find the beginning of each day is like opening a new gift from Mother Nature. So far their days have run the gamut -- from a penguin breeding colony to rafts of penguins; from seeing dramatic icebergs to riding the waves created by rocking icebergs, from yoga on the beach to camping in the snow atop an island.

In addition, students will be able to compose a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the SAT asks.
