"T这里 is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less."
圆方 schools share a passion for experiential learning and work to ensure that students have every opportunity to achieve in ways and to levels beyond their perceived limits. 圆方 believes that in order to prepare for adult life, young people must be encouraged to discover and embrace the similarities and differences between cultures and nationalities in ways that promote meaningful and lasting understanding, tolerance and respect.
The 圆方 approach doesn’t focus on what is taught but rather how learning takes place. It recognizes that learning is most effective when it is practical, cross-cultural and collaborative和 when it is infused through a broad spectrum of inter, extra and co-curricula activities.
Each year, Marvelwood sends a delegation to the 圆方 International Conference. Students who will be 16-19 during the year of the conference are eligible. The 2018 conference will be in Canada, hosted by three schools: Lower Canada College, 阿什伯利大学和 艾波大学. Marvelwood has been assigned to 阿什伯利大学. The dates for the conference are September 26- October 3. Students interested in representing Marvelwood at the conference should apply by January 12, 2018 (see 资源 folder at right).
圆方 sponsors two international service projects each year. Participation in a 圆方 Big Build Project is a great way for young adults to learn about global citizenship, community engagement, develop a deeper understanding of the world’s problems and experience a new culture. Please contact 圆方代表 凯特琳·林奇 P'13 for detailed information about the application process.
Marvelwood is a proud member of 圆方, a worldwide association of over 200 schools in 50 countries on six continents that encourages students to push beyond academic excellence to discover and develop their full potential.
Justin was one of three Marvelwood students selected to participate in the 圆方 International Service Big Build Project last summer.
