Cardinal Ritter High School 2020 China Trip

The 2020 Educational trip to China represents a series of opportunities for Cardinal Ritter High School students to travel internationally with school faculty, within a unique and impactful historical and cultural experience.

This travel program provides a unique perspective for students and faculty to broaden their global awareness, build relationships, practice Chinese language 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 importantly, we believe that educational 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 students within an increasingly interconnected global community.
