Developing ties with schools in China is part of Corbett Prep’s overall mission to deliver a multicultural education, teaching students to think internationally and globally to prepare them for the future. Corbett Prep has a longstanding relationship with schools in Spain through educator trainings and student trips and continues to build its links to China.
A study program that brings Chinese students to Corbett Prep allows our students to experience Chinese life and culture beyond what they could have learned from books alone. Chinese students have also joined campers at CAMP IDS during the summer. Families volunteer to host children in their homes in a valuable cultural exchange.
In March 2018, Corbett Prep Headmaster Dr. Joyce Burick Swarzman was a featured speaker at the Chengdu Sino-US K-12 Education Symposium. Dr. Swarzman was pleased to have had the chance to share with an international audience information about Corbett Prep and the M.O.R.E. Model!
Corbett Prep's book, It's All About Kids: Every Child Deserves a Teacher of the Year, has also been published in Chinese.
