Global Studies Programs
Global Studies is a whole-school endeavor that infuses our curriculum with global mindedness: beginning with world language instruction in the Lower School, expanding with the Global Exchange Program in the Middle School, and culminating with the advanced course offerings in the Upper School.
Along with our formal curriculum and classroom instruction, students at CSN have the benefit and opportunity of interacting with teachers and students from around the world. Many of our faculty bring their experiences of living, teaching, and visiting other countries into their daily classroom instruction.
Additionally, many students at CSN draw from a variety of backgrounds, nationalities, and languages, which adds to the overall experience of every CSN student. For instance, did you know that the Class of 2015 hailed from 9 countries and spoke 11 languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, German, French, Czech, Hebrew, Korean, Creole and Tagalog?
Students in grades 11 and 12 wanting a longer-term overseas experience can apply to School Year Abroad (SYA), which enables students to either do a six-week summer stay or a year-long stay in the following countries:
As the only SYA member school in Florida, CSN students have a unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves into a culture, language, and country. During the 2015-16 school year, we have two students participating in SYA, one in France and one in Italy. For both of these students, this will be a truly life-changing experience.
