Global Scholars

The Global Scholars Program equips students with the necessary skills and experience to be leaders in the competitive and challenging 21st century. It exposes them to different cultures, languages, and perspectives and they will come away with a deeper understanding of the complex web of cultural, religious, social, economic, and scientific issues that are the trademarks of our global world.

Students with demonstrated interest in global issues and affairs can apply to be a Global Scholar during their sophomore or junior years. Students commit to rigorous coursework and language study, as well as participation in service to a global community, and extracurricular activities. Global Scholars present their experiences, research, and life lessons, to the whole school in the spring of the their senior year.
