Global Engagement

Mission

As a founding member of the Global Education Benchmark Group, Head-Royce believes that Global Education develops the knowledge, skills, and empathic orientation required to understand multiple perspectives and to thrive in increasingly interconnected world systems. A global citizen acts to promote the common good locally, nationally, and internationally.

We believe this work of Global Education is deeply aligned with the School’s dedication to sustainability, equity, and civic engagement, and that the most meaningful Global Education occurs at the intersection of these initiatives. 

With these goals in mind, Head-Royce works to advance Global Education through our curriculum, study travel experiences, and institutional partnerships.

 

Curriculum 

The global curriculum begins with the study of people and cultures around the world in Lower School literature, social studies, science along with the formal study of Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese.

 

Semester/Year Study Abroad

We partner with School Year Abroad to send 3–5 students to their campuses every year (Spain, France, Italy) as well as other semester programs (The Mountain School, Oxbow School, High Mountain Institute).

 

Study-Travel Experiences

The CCE provides experiential learning that empowers students to become engaged global citizens. 

Every year the CCE facilitates three to four global education study-travel programs. These trips are designed to foster deep reflection and community engagement at three levels: local, national, and global. We work hard to craft learning opportunities that aren’t available to the casual traveler, often forgoing popular tourist destinations to prioritize conversations with local activists and experts.

As part of our commitment to equity and inclusion, the CCE provides substantial financial aid to make these programs accessible to all students. We are able to offer aid to any student receiving tuition assistance once per division. We also support individual student travel through the Falik Fund for International Study Travel.
