History of Thrival Academy: Oakland and Thrival Academy: Indianapolis
Currently, there is a Thrival Academy in Oakland and one in Indianapolis. During the 2016-2017 school year, Thrival Academy: Oakland traveled to Thailand for three months.

Rustic Pathways expects to have a team of international and Thai program leaders and two program managers working with the Thrival Academies students and teachers. The exact composition of our team will depend on student recruitment and program schedules.
