The ultimate goal of the international program is to help create more responsible, global citizens through a creative and holistic approach to learning.

Our Mission

The Lawrenceville School is dedicated to ensuring that every student has the opportunity for a meaningful and authentic experience abroad which is tied to our curriculum, service programs or other co-curricular initiatives.

Inherent in such a program is a desire to help make our students more aware of global issues and different cultures, as well as stress the importance of establishing personal connections to others around the world.

The ultimate goal of the international program is to help create more responsible, global citizens through a creative and holistic approach to learning.

Our program website is designed to not only advertise our spring and summer offerings, but also serves as a reference point for trip forms, logistics, and program policies.

Please read important program policies and general information about getting involved.
