Exploring the World Beyond Chadwick
Chadwick’s Global Programs are committed to igniting students’ curiosity, broadening their perspectives and helping them develop the skills to successfully interact, thrive and lead in an increasingly interconnected world.
From an early age, our students explore international concepts and cultures, gaining invaluable global competency. They are true global citizens. By understanding themselves, their own culture and that of others, they can become powerful leaders in the effort to achieve a more humane, just and peaceful global society.
Each year, Chadwick offers a breadth of global experience trips centered around cultural and academic exchanges, language immersion, community service and marine biology.
Of 150 member schools on five continents, Chadwick is one of two Los Angeles-based schools with full membership in Round Square.
Chadwick’s Global Programs provide students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes as emerging leaders and engaged global citizens through travel, both within the United States and abroad. These opportunities stem from four primary sources:
Round Square is an international consortium of schools dedicated to IDEALS: Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Leadership and Service. Students can participate in conferences, exchanges and service projects through this network.
Chadwick International is our sister campus in Songdo, South Korea. Both students and faculty have opportunities to go on exchanges based on athletic, academic and cultural expansion. We also offer a leadership grant for students who want to propose collaborative initiatives between campuses.
Faculty-Developed Programs that include the sciences, humanities, and performing arts.
Partnerships with nine different Term-Away Programs, each unique, but all utilizing their locations and environments for “real-world” teaching and learning.
Ultimately, all of these opportunities encourage students to develop a sense of self and place, an empathic orientation and civic responsibility for communities near and far.
