Global Education

St. Ignatius envisioned the world as a place where Christ loved and served—and, therefore, as a place of grace, a place of being able to give life to others. St. louis U. High embraces a global education model that illuminates the vision of Ignatius. We do so not just because a globally conscious education is vital to succeed in a world distinguished by interdependence, diversity and rapid change, but because it provides the knowledge and understanding of culture, language, geography and global perspectives needed to carry out our mission of building Christ's kingdom.

SLUH GLobal education Curriculum, 2021-2022Please take a look at the Spring Break and Summer programs that we are excited to offer for this current school year. All programs are contingent upon meeting minimum numbers of participants and domestic as well as international travel guidelines and conditions. Please fill out a SLUH Global Education Program Application, linked at the bottom of each program page, if you have serious interest in participating. By applying to the program(s) in which you are interested, this will help better inform our planning process. Applications are not binding and can be made to multiple programs.  Further steps will be communicated for each program as the planning/preparation process progresses. Students will be asked to commit to Spring Break programs in late November/early December. Summer program commitments will be expected in late February.

"Our students return from exchanges with not just a greater fluency in their language of study, but most importantly a true appreciation for another culture's point of view, the ability to see the world not just with our own eyes but through the eyes of another."
