Gonzaga, the only Jesuit secondary school in our nation’s capital, is part of a larger Jesuit Global Network of Schools -- a community of 874 schools and over 870,000 students worldwide. We offer opportunities for our students to engage more deeply with the world around us, with the goal of becoming better global citizens.
Academic, social justice, cultural immersion, and exchange programs expose our students to global topics and take them all over the world. These experiences provide the opportunity for our students to take learning outside of the classroom, serve the poor and marginalized, and understand more fully the diverse cultures of the world.
In addition, as part of Gonzaga's focus on global education, we are partnering with and participating in the Jesuit Schools Network's Ignatian Global Scholars Certificate Pilot Program. This program promotes interconnected learning experiences in the classroom and beyond to help the student become a global citizen.
Our Ignatian Global Scholars Certificate Program provides a unique opportunity for our students to engage with a globally focused plan of study. Service experiences, both domestic and abroad, allow students to connect with those living on the margins and explore social issues. International immersion trips offer a chance to live in and experience other cultures, while our Global Exchange Programs provide an even greater opportunity to connect, learn, and share with the larger global network of Jesuit schools.
