How will I get to the Academy?

Here are some tips to make your travel to campus smooth:

  • Please add your flight details to your Campus Profile and our amazing Hospitality Team will coordinate your shuttle on your behalf. Please ensure this is done at least one week prior to your workshop start date.
  • Your ground transportation details with our partner (name will be revealed soon) will be confirmed by the end of the day, Friday prior to your workshop start date. How to find your driver/shuttle will be emailed to you then.
  • Tips are very much appreciated, but not expected.
  • Trust you're in great hands and if you have questions about your transportation arrangements, you can email our team at hospitality@modernelderacademy.com.
  • You will receive confirmation details directly by the end of the day, Friday prior to your workshop start date.

     

Note: If you're arriving before or staying after your workshop's start/end date, you will be responsible for the transportation fee of $135, payable directly to your driver.

However, our team will coordinate this on your behalf!

Renting a Car

You DO NOT need a car during your stay with us. But if you choose to rent a car, namely if you are extending your stay in New Mexico before or after your workshop, we strongly recommend Thrifty, Hertz, Budget, or Avis. 

Nighttime driving is not recommended, particularly on your first visit. Sunset in winter can be as early as 5:00 pm. Exciting driving challenges include dirt roads, livestock, terrible and non-existing signage and lighting. Luckily, highway 285 nearby will guide you towards Santa Fe in case you need anything at the nearest shops and grocery stores. We will accommodate you the best we can on campus.

Getting to MEA at Rising Circle Ranch is as easy as a Google Maps search. This search will provide accurate directions to campus. For immigration purposes, you may use this address for campus:
