INDIANAPOLIS — A new program at Indianapolis Public Schools is giving students a chance to immerse themselves in another culture by traveling across the world and being a part of it.

Thrival Academy started as a pilot program last year and is now a full high school within the campus of Arsenal Technical High School.

The program is open to high school juniors and there are currently close to 40 students enrolled.

Those students spent the first semester of this school year in the classroom, learning about the language and the culture of Thailand.

Those same students will spend the next three months in the country, as part of the project-based curriculum.

While studying abroad, students will learn about migration, conservation, mining, development, farming and agriculture.
