Global Education

The world is our house.

In the late 1500s, Jerome Nadal S. J. expressed this, and today, we share the same vision and mission as the founding Jesuits before us. 


We had the pleasure of hosting Danny, a foreign exchange student from Taiwan, for approximately one month.  It was a wonderful experience as we shared the traditions and customs of America as well as learning about those of Taiwan.  We celebrate diversity, especially exposure to different cultures, and sincerely hope that Danny left our country with fond memories because the time we spent with him positively impacted our family.
