A journey to thinking and acting on a global scale

Travel Program Progression

Nearly 90% of Pacific Ridge students participate in the Global Travel program each year.

At Pacific Ridge, global engagement encompasses both perspective and action.

Global issues are woven throughout our curriculum. Our middle school students travel with faculty earlier in the year, while upper school trip take place during the final weeks of the school year, with families and Pacific Ridge School working together to make it possible for all students to participate. Students travel with a purpose: they aim for cultural connection as they strengthen their understanding of the year’s curriculum and take learning beyond the classroom walls. Students travel according to grade level and are accompanied by faculty and professional trip guides.

Our travelers pursue engagement through academic enrichment, cultural and linguistic immersion, and service work. These activities lead to an understanding of the interdependency of cultures and the inspiration to act for the good of the world.
