Global education opportunities are powerful learning tools that surround a student with a particular culture and intense experience. Through local, national and international immersion experiences, students will be empowered to work effectively with diverse populations in a variety of settings to build global perspective, cultural competency and cultural fluency.

2018-19 NDSJ Global Education Opportunities
Students have the opportunity to experience culture, service, and language through a variety of unique local, national and global trip offerings. From rebuilding neighborhoods and snacking on beignets in New Orleans to serving the underprivileged while learning about the Tenderloin's storied history in San Francisco, there is a trip for everyone.
Thank you to the parents and students who joined us at our first annual Global Education Information Night on September 17! The link to our slideshow presentation can be found here. Detailed information about all of 2018-19's trips can be found here, or click the links below to learn more about each individual offering.
