Student Life

Global Studies

 

Global experiences abroad

For students of the world, education lies outside the limits of tests and homework, and within universal perspectives. Learning on multiple continents is vital to the educational experience at The Epiphany School of Global Studies. A world-class education does not expire beyond college or across borders but urges students from deep within to learn for a lifetime.

We want students to have the opportunityStudent reading from board to cast their horizons far and look beyond the limits they place on their future. Epiphany's approach to Global Studies is based on meaningful contact with communities in faraway places and letting students experience what life is like through eyes a world away. Students will gain an inclusive perspective and an understanding of their potential abilities and international impact.

During a time in which the lines drawn on a map mean less and the ink on a passport is a portfolio in itself, the only divide between peoples lies in human connection. We are preparing scholars for a global future that measures distance in languages and cultures, not miles.
