Global Studies 

Four beliefs frame the Global Studies experience for our students as they develop into citizens of the global community:

  • Learning takes place when we step outside of the known environment, beyond what is familiar and comfortable;
  • Global engagement and cultural awareness are threads to be woven throughout a student's career at Bancroft;
  • Exposure to cultural differences builds empathy and understanding of diversity in all its forms; and
  • Bancroft’s unique PreK–12 experience allows occasions to periodically reflect on how global learning has changed and enriched our perspectives over time.
