As boarding and day schools have internationalized, teachers and administrators have encountered new complexities in nearly every aspect of schooling— from admission, parent communications, and classroom pedagogy, to college advising, constituency relations, and development. At the same time, a pioneering spirit has taken hold in a number of schools, with many educators seeking to enlarge the vision of "preparatory" schools to include preparation for global citizenship in a world increasingly interconnected economically, environmentally, culturally, and politically.
The Global Symposium will bring together school leaders, educators, and experts to learn from each other and to explore current practice and promising ways forward.
