Kigali, Rwanda

During this program, BC High students will stay with host families, attend daily classes, participate in a collaborative retreat with students from St. Ignatius, and experience all that the Rwandan culture has to offer.  The Hyde Center will be partnering with Fordham Prep for this exciting experience!
This program is for students who want to be leaders; who want to forge the way in a groundbreaking new partnership; and who want to experience a country and culture that turned hardship, tragedy, and hate into peace, reconciliation, and love. Juniors and seniors will receive retreat credit for this program.
