At New Garden Friends School we appreciate our obligation to prepare students to participate meaningfully as global citizens. We welcome international students to live and learn with us for we know that tomorrow’s leaders will require more than the ability to think critically and creatively; the future will require communication and cooperation with people from all over the globe. When students come to understand how other people experience the world, they begin to challenge their own assumptions. For many students, even well-travelled ones, this is how they begin to thoughtfully consider ideas from more than one perspective.
NGFS provides international students from diverse backgrounds an enriching and challenging Friends school experience. Our students benefit from not only receiving the preparation and support they need to succeed in U.S. colleges and universities, they also develop the friendships and skills they need to grow into responsible and caring citizens of the world.
