Student travel programs provide an opportunity for St. Mark’s students and faculty to broaden their global perspectives, build relationships, practice skills, and apply knowledge beyond the confines of the classroom or campus. Travel also promotes critical thinking, self-awareness, independence, confidence, curiosity, adaptability, cooperation, and ethical leadership. Most important, the school believes that travel has the unique ability to erode ethnocentric perceptions, reveal the common human condition, and strengthen universal similarities. These skills are crucial to cross-cultural collaboration and contribute to the development of empathetic global citizens while sharing and demonstrating the values of St. Mark’s School of Texas within an increasingly interconnected global community.
