The Beyond the Classroom (BtC) program is designed to give students the experiences that will inspire them to become compassionate, globally aware citizens. Global awareness not only helps students appreciate their own culture but it also helps foster an appreciation of the values and traditions of others. Students will take action to make the world a better place and engage in sustainable service in order to gain awareness of issues that go beyond their national borders. Students will strengthen their teamwork skills as they have opportunities on these trips to work together in teams to plan and execute their vision in order to reach a common goal of greater good. This year’s BtC trips are scheduled to go to Cape Town, South Africa and Hanoi, Vietnam.
