Learning Through A Global Context
New challenges that are not defined by traditional boundaries call for students to develop the agility and imagination they need for living productively in a complex world, which is why Seven Peaks creates learning environments that value the world as the broadest context for learning. To this end, our learning environments aim to develop international-mindedness. We teach students how to reflect on their own perspectives, as well as the perspectives of others, by providing for sustained inquiry into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally, and globally. We empower students to be active learners who can empathize and pursue lives of purpose and meaning, and who are committed to service. This represents a commitment to address humanity’s greatest challenges in the classroom and beyond. Globally engaged people critically consider power and privilege and recognize that they hold the Earth and its resources in trust for future generations.
