Global Engagement & Experiential Learning
Scots are citizens of the world.
Global awareness matters more than ever, and we are committed to helping Scots become inspired citizens of the world who lead positive change and serve others within the school community and beyond.
Turning Knowledge into Action
Students turn knowledge into action through experiences worldwide, cultural events, and volunteer opportunities. Through these experiences, Scots have the opportunity to learn and experience the diversity of people in South Florida, the United States, and around the world - our similarities, our differences, and how we are interconnected.
As part of our commitment to bring a global emphasis to our core curriculum, Saint Andrew's School is a world member of the Round Square organization. Our membership in the Round Square organization takes our mission of educating students in mind, body, and spirit to a new level. Round Square is a worldwide association of more than 180 schools in five continents that share a unique and ambitious commitment to personal development and responsibility. This is achieved as students participate in community service, exchange programs, and conferences, which often take them halfway around the world.
Saint Andrew’s School is proud to offer an Immersion Program as part of our mission to educate passionate, balanced, and confident students of character as they deep-dive into a discipline of their choosing. These immersive experiences help create life skills such as independence, resourcefulness, resilience, and responsibility. Furthermore, they offer our students the opportunity to take on new challenges, reach beyond their comfort zones, and follow passions while discovering new interests.
Immersion courses are typically connected to the greater curriculum, and are led by a combination of our own teachers and skilled guest instructors. Examples of Immersion courses have included Advanced First Aid certification, Culinary instruction, and even Hip Hop dance. Immersion has also encompassed domestic and international trips. Through this program, students have been the beneficiaries of experiences that wouldn’t have been possible at any ordinary school.
