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.
