Middle School students can participate in Global Programs
that comprise travel courses with a robust, experiential-learning focus. Students also enjoy opportunities to host international students and to travel domestically with them, for a true cultural exchange. Travel abroad and cultural exchanges like these promote the pillars of MS -- respect, responsibility, honesty -- while helping students gain independence and personal growth.
In addition to the possibility of international travel, all Middle School students go on overnight trips in the fall. For two nights, sixth grade visits Outdoor School at Shavers Creek near State College, while seventh grade ventures to Refreshing Mountain in Stevens, Pa. Meanwhile, the eighth grade enjoys a three night adventure at Echo Hill Camp on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. These trips promote community building and learning outside the classroom walls.
