Global Perspective

At SPSG, Upper School students develop a greater understanding of the world around them as they engage with voices from schools across the globe. These interactions, whether through technology, exchange programs, or global literature and discussion in a variety of our courses. 

Trips:

Collège et lycée Marseilleveyre, Marseilles, France, sister school since 2010:

On alternate years, we travel to our sister school in Marseilles and welcome boys and girls from Marseilleveyres to SPSG.  Upper School SP and SPSG students taking French are encouraged to apply for hosting and travel opportunities.

Fettes College, Edinburgh, Scotland, partner school since 2013:

In the 2013-2014 school year, St. Paul’s School for Girls and St. Paul's established this cultural exchange opportunity for upper school students. Each year, two upper school girls and two upper school boys host students from Fettes College for about two weeks, and then they spend two weeks in Scotland with their host siblings at Fettes college.

St. Hilda’s School, Queensland, Australia, sister school since 2010:

Each year, SPSG selects two sophomores to spend six weeks at St. Hilda’s School. Following their experience at St. Hilda’s, SPSG students return to Brooklandville with their sisters from St. Hilda’s, who study and participate in SPSG activities for six weeks. Interested SPSG sophomores are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.

Pascal Gymnasium, Muenster, Germany, St. Paul’s Partner School since 1994:

The SPSG girls and SP Boys have been partaking in the German Exchange Program with Pascal Gymnasium in Muenster, Germany for over 20 years. Known as a university city with bicycle access to all points of entertainment, culture, and intellectualism, Muenster presents SP boys and girls with a unique opportunity to learn about a foreign culture while still feeling comfortable and “at home” in a medium-sized city. While taking part in the three week trip, students have the opportunity to attend classes, spend free time with their exchange partners, experience German family life, and see some of Germany’s most prominent and important cities. German students from the St. Paul’s Schools also have the opportunity to host students from Pascal Gymnasium in alternate years

St. George’s College, Buenos Aires, Argentina, sister school since 2011:

Each year, the St. Paul's Schools select two students (sophomores or juniors) to participate in an exchange with St. George’s College. Students host for three weeks in February, and travel to St. George's College in June. Spanish language students are encouraged to apply for this immersion experience.

Suiryo School, Yokohama, Japan, sister school since 1993:

Each spring, SPSG hosts students in grades 8–11 from Suiryo School . In June, SPSG students have the opportunity to visit Suiryo School for two weeks. In November 2018, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our sister-school relationship with Suiryo. Although Japanese language students receive priority in hosting and travel opportunities, all SPSG students in grades 8-11 are encouraged to apply.

Service Learning Trip to Heifer International:

Each summer, SPSG offers a summer service learning trip for rising ninth and tenth graders at the Heifer International Learning Center at Overlook Farm in Rutland, MA. Here, SPSG students have the opportunity to learn about the mission of Heifer International, which is “To work with communities to end hunger and poverty while caring for the world.” During the week, girls participate in the life of the farm by caring for animals, tending the gardens, doing farm chores, and helping the staff. Through all of their experiences, they learn about hunger, sustainability, the global economy, fair trade, organic and local farming practices, as well as different cultures. Midweek, they spend one day and night in Heifer’s Global Village, where they experience daily life in a culture different from their own. It is quite a powerful trip and the girls who have gone in the past have been extremely moved by their time there.  Students earn 40 hours of direct community service for participating in this trip. 

Escola Pia De Stiges, Stiges, Spain, St. Paul’s Partner School since 2012:

The St. Paul's School exchange with Escola Pia in Sitges, Spain began in 2012. SPSG and SP students host Spanish students in April for ten days, then travel to Spain in June. During the approximately two-week long trip, students visit Madrid, Spain’s capital and cultural center, and travel east to Cataluña where they meet their host families.
