Student Travel Opportunities

Students will gain awareness of global perspectives and develop the interpersonal skills necessary to navigate new experiences with confidence, maturity and flexibility.

NSU University School is committed to offering authentic travel experiences for Middle and Upper School students that are connected to curriculum, service learning, or extra-curricular initiatives.

The increasing interconnectedness of our world is a reality. Political, economic, social, and environmental systems no longer exist in isolation and as a result cultural competency is a 21st century skill of incredible value. A global education at USchool develops the knowledge, skills, and empathy required to understand a myriad of perspectives and to flourish in the most diverse and cosmopolitan of communities.

Trips to China, Costa Rica, Italy, and Greece have offered students opportunities to use languages skills in indigenous settings and experience world cultures firsthand. Students have also traveled on service trips to Haiti, where they have built homes, worked with local schools, and contributed to disaster-relief efforts.

These experiences enable students to truly understand and appreciate other cultures through immersion and hands-on learning, give them greater knowledge of the world, and are formative moments that shape their beliefs as global citizens.
