Promoting Cultural Awareness, Community Service, and Global Citizenship
International Programs at Maryknoll
Maryknoll’s International Programs promote cultural awareness, community service, and global citizenship. These programs fulfill Maryknoll School’s mission to create 21st century learners, leaders and citizens of character, and to put to practice Noblesse Oblige, the motto which we instill in our students.
We teach our students to respect fellow human beings regardless of their race, gender, religion, economic and political backgrounds; we educate them to appreciate the diversity of different cultures; we encourage them to cherish the nature and regard the rights of all living things, and to strive to resolve world conflicts without the use of violence. The international experiences that Maryknoll School offers are that of personal growth. Students who participate in these programs become more understanding, mature and confident. 21st Century "global preparedness" education helps students develop a greater appreciation for diverse perspectives, cultivate understanding of their connections to the world, and more effectively communicate and collaborate across cultures. It is our belief that the international opportunities can enable our students to become global citizens who will be leaders in advocating for global change and world peace.
