INTERNATIONAL SERVICE TRIPS
Keystone students are globally minded and socially aware. In addition to a robust local community service program, we also provide our students with opportunities to grow into global leaders and world-minded citizens. Our students learn that education does not stop at the school gates; it continues in the world at large. We further our global education ideals through our shared values by insisting upon compassion, justice, respect, wisdom and honesty in our international service work and global leadership programs.
In April 2015, 22 Keystone students and two teachers journeyed to Kathmandu, Nepal in order to volunteer in two local communities. Two weeks after our return to Beijing, a devastating earthquake damaged the areas in which our students had worked and visited. The students who had participated in the trip demanded that we return to Nepal in the spring of 2016 to provide true earthquake relief efforts. In April 2016, Keystone students and teachers once again journeyed to Kathmandu, Nepal.
Keystone students may also elect to join one of a number of other global service trips each year. They may choose to volunteer at an elephant rescue sanctuary in Thailand, build a house in China with Habitat for Humanity, perform wild life conservation work in Botswana, or volunteer in villages in Laos and Bali.
