Global Education

FP and BC High students traveled to Australia in 2016.

Fordham Prep’s Global Education Program aims to raise student awareness of the world outside their own environment through the exploration of different and diverse cultures in the world community. This awareness will prepare students to be more empathetic, accepting of differences, aware of social justice and human rights issues, and better prepared for an interconnected and diverse world in which they will live and work. They will also be better prepared to understand and embrace world cultures, communicate effectively at a global level, respect and value diversity, understand and take action against injustices, and develop skills necessary to work cross-culturally. 

For more information about our Global Education program contact Ms. Teresa Di Vita-Geremia, Coordinator of Global Education.

In our continuing efforts to expand our Global Education program, last week Mr. Carney and two teachers from Boston College High School traveled to Kilgali, Rwanda to explore a new partnership with St. Ignatius School. St. Ignatius, opened in 2008, is a K through 12 school serving over 800 students. We look forward to a student trip in the near future.
