Global Experiences

Ravenscroft is committed to nurturing and preparing future citizen leaders to thrive and become positive contributors in a complex and interdependent world. Our Global Education program is one of the ways we cultivate global perspective and cultural awareness, whether on our own campus through virtual exchanges and cultural exploration or through travel programs taking students across the globe.

These travel programs are thoughtfully connected to specific learning outcomes, with ties to our curriculum and/or service opportunities, reflecting the school’s mission and values — a global approach to Lead From Here.

We are pleased to offer the following programs for the 2022-23 school year (subject to sufficient student interest). Families of interested Upper School students are encouraged to attend the online interest meetings as noted below. Please see the Ravenscroft Weekly for meeting links and access codes.

“It is safe to say that hosting Álvaro was the best decision and experience of my entire high school career. I created lifelong relationships with both my American and Spanish peers, I learned a lot about a culture and lifestyle that fascinates me, and I believe that I came out as a better person."
