What do a Tai Chi champion from Iran, a published short story author from India and an Italian dancer/actor/writer/painter/sailor have in common? The Ananda Living Wisdom International Online High School!

Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, the school's approach was developed by Swami Kriyananda in his book Education for Life and further realized by Nitai Deranja,  current co-director of the high school and of Education For Life InternationalThe students are like-minded teens from around the globe who seek to develop maturity, personal excellence, self-discovery and adventure.
