Global Scholars is an honors group inaugurated last year at Georgetown Preparatory School.
Throughout the year, students participate in seminars on a variety of interdisciplinary topics that culminate in a trip: a capstone experience and further cementing participants as academically, globally, and spiritually competent men. This year, we will continue our focus on the home of the Catholic faith and one of the ancient birthplaces of architectural ingenuity, oratory, and our government: Italy.
Global Scholars selects students for their compassion, academic excellence, and commitment to global citizenship. During the year, students will participate in a monthly seminar to promote the following: intellectual discourse on a variety of disciplines and how they interrelate, discussion on current events and issues regarding our faith, and create a foundation of international community through discourse with our alumni and contacts across the globe.
During Spring Break 2018, participants will embark on a trip to Italy where they will see some of the great monuments of the ancient world and Catholic faith while exploring the natural sciences, discussing engineering applications, growing in their understanding of the Jesuit tradition and Catholic faith, engaging in discourse on environmental concerns and social justice, and investigating the applications of history, the Classics, and literature on the modern and ancient world. As this year overlaps with Easter, we will be spending the Holy season in the Vatican and Rome.
Accepted applicants who complete Global Scholars will have it added to their transcripts as an honor completed at Georgetown Preparatory School.
