Global Connections

The Augusta Prep Global Connections Program enriches the lives of students through experiential education by immersing them in a world that is increasingly interconnected. Global travel promotes deeper learning, greater empathy, and sharper cross-cultural communication skills. Through travel, we will better live the school’s mission to educate well-rounded, engaged students who embrace personal responsibility, global perspective, and service to others.
At Augusta Prep, we have always embraced the value of travel and for many years travel experiences have been led by a variety of teachers. Through our recently designed Global Travel Program, opportunities become more purposeful, mission-aligned, and learning-focused. An added benefit of such focused programming is that Prep’s travel experiences are now eligible to receive academic credit, which will appear on their transcripts.

Global Connections Program offerings have been designed to meet one or more of the following criteria:
  • Experiential Learning & Cultural Exploration
  • Language Immersion
  • Service to Others

In July 2022, 11 Augusta Prep middle school students and two faculty chaperones experienced a unique place in coastal Maine, Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership. In their one-week visit, students learned more about coastal ecosystems, marine plants and animals, and had an opportunity to work with the research team to learn about aquaculture, including how to grow and harvest kelp. They also learned how sustainable systems work, including solar power and marine farming.
