Welcome to Global Programs at the Pingry School. In keeping with the spirit of Pingry's Strategic Plan, Global Programs prepares our students to be "global citizens and leaders of the 21st century who engage the world rather than seek sanctuary from it." To reach this goal, Pingry offers a globally relevant curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities that bring the world into the classroom and extend our program beyond the border of our campus.
Global Programs promotes cultural literacy and challenges students and faculty to see the world from the perspective of others, offering opportunities that have the potential to change participants' lives. By the time they graduate students will have learned how to serve interests beyond the school and themselves, thus "ensuring that Pingry leaves the world a better place for our contributions to it."
Students interested in taking a semester or year away from Pingry have a number of programs to chose from. Most of the programs are offered to juniors, although there are also opportunities for sophomores and seniors as well.
Please note that most program application deadlines for the 2013-2014 academic year have passed.
There are numerous opportunities for students to attend non-Pingry programs both nationally and internationally in the summer months. Please contact Sara Boisvert, Director of Global Programs firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Gap Year Programs
Gap Years are available to students interested in taking a year off between high school and college.
