Hyde Center for Global Education

Glasgow, Scotland

The Hyde Center is excited to announce a weeklong experience for current freshman in partnership with St. Aloysius College in Glasgow, Scotland.
June of 2017 is the inagural trip for this program.  The Hyde Center expects to continue this partnership in June 2018 and this decision will be made at the beginning of the 2017 - 2018 school year. 

During this program, students will stay with host families, participate in a daylong retreat, attend classes, explore both Glasgow and Edinburgh, and engage in St. Aloysius’ outdoor educational program!  Focusing on our common Jesuit roots, traditions and relationships, we expect this program to introduce participants to the transformative nature of global experiences through building strong relationships within the Jesuit network. 

List of 4 items.

  • Eligibility & Application Process

    Current freshmen are eligible to apply.
  • Host Family Experience

    Because cultural immersion is such an important part of our exchange program, and in an effort to keep our cost reasonable, students will stay with a host family during this program. Students who participate in an international program and host an exchange student in their homes have the most fulfilling experience. For this reason, it is the expectation of all students who travel to Scotland to serve as a host family in the fall of 2017 for St. Aloysius’ reciprocal visit. Families will be responsible for hosting two visiting students.  Whenever possible, a BC High student will host the student they lived with in Glasgow.
  • Program Costs

    Estimated at $1,500 - Cost includes program tuition, board, meals, travel within Scotland, and entrance fees. Expenses that are not included are: round-trip air travel, personal items, and services such as passport fees, phone calls, and personal spending money. (Final cost is determined by participation.) Financial aid is available through the application process.
  • Program Dates

    Estimated to run immediately following the conclusion of the academic year and will last for 7 – 9 days.
