Salesian students experience learning that extends beyond the classroom. Throughout their high school experience students engage with different cultures, absorb new perspectives and gain skills that prepare them to make a positive impact as a global citizen.
Salesian provides students many opportunities to immerse themselves in other cultures as they pursue their global journey:
- Salesian’s native-born student body is 27 percent Hispanic, 23 percent African-American, 18 percent Pacific Islander, 14 percent multi-racial, 14 percent Caucasian and 4 percent Asian. At Salesian, students learn to respect cultures, languages, religions and traditions other than their own.
- The diverse Salesian community includes students from Brazil, China, Germany, India, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria and Peru; students gain understanding by seeing issues from many points of view.
- Salesian College Preparatory is one of several hundred Salesian schools worldwide, part of a global teaching network based on the principles of Saint John Bosco.
- Students can participate in international service-learning projects.
- Speakers are invited to campus to address global issues.
- Salesian offers Spanish and French language courses.
These international enrichment opportunities provide a window into the world students will enter once they leave high school, including tackling the challenges of college and the modern workplace.
