|OUR ROLE IN THE WORLD BEYOND OUR DOORS|
Lakeside’s Global Programs introduce our students to the world beyond their doors, fostering cultural awareness and responsible global citizenry.
Global Service Learning (GSL) is Lakeside's leading-edge program designed to help students prepare for the challenges of the 21st century. It equips them with the tools they need to meet a more interconnected world, nurturing the values of mutual respect, cross-cultural understanding, equity, and justice.
Students can study abroad during their junior year of high school through School Year Abroad (SYA). If they apply in the winter of their sophomore year, they can spend their junior year in Spain, France, Italy, China, Japan or Vietnam.
Lakeside is currently developing a Peru Semester program in a rural Andean village located in the Sacred Valley near Cusco and Machu Picchu. Students, in their junior year, will engage in academic, cultural, and service learning experiences while living with home stay families. The program includes significant educational field trips which provide students with opportunities to study other parts of Peru. This program is projected to start in Fall 2014.
|Lakeside's global programs are overseen by the Global Education Committee of Lakeside's Board of Trustees. It is administered by Director of Global Education, Charlotte Blessing. She is assisted by Lakeside's Medical Advisory Board and Risk Management committee.|
