Global Education Announces Travel Programs for 2022-23

The mission and vision statement for Global Education at Ravenscroft

Ravenscroft’s Global Education program is restarting student travel for Upper School students — with some exciting new offerings that are thoughtfully connected to curriculum and/or service opportunities. 

The focus, an extension of the purposeful alignment of Global Ed priorities with Lead From Here and the school’s mission and values, means student travel now serves specific learning outcomes in addition to taking students to new places and new experiences.

“These offerings for the 2022-23 school year are all perfect examples of what we’re doing in Global Ed overall,” program director Melanie Spransy said. “The opportunities they represent are very intentional and have ties to an ethical travel framework that is very much in keeping with Ravenscroft’s commitment to cultivating global citizenship.”
