Academic and Co-Curricular Programming

Learning in the World supports the development of global and intercultural competencies through Phillips Academy’s academic and co-curricular programs. Students and adults take their learning beyond the confines of the campus, whether they’re pursuing place-based programming on campus, locally, or nearby or bringing partners into their spaces virtually or in person. Experiences include term-long courses, units of study, field work, cultural exchange, expert speakers, and more. These immersive, enriching, and enlightening opportunities are accessible to the community with no additional cost while school is in session.
