Why Global Studies?

As it says in our school’s mission statement, San Jose Episcopal Day School is dedicated to empowering students to achieve academic excellence built on a Christian foundation, fostering lifelong global and community stewardship.

We want our students to know and understand that there are other cultures out in the world other than our own.  We make up a very small portion of the world, but we don’t usually get to see those other places and the way they live their everyday lives.

Being able to send teachers to a foreign country lets our students see firsthand how other cultures live.  With the technology of today our students are able to interact with those teachers on a daily basis while there.
