Curricular Global Learning​​

From South Africa to Ghana, Exonians have lived and studied on a continent that is undergoing incredible development.

Rich with culture and compelling history, the “rainbow nation” has served as a fascinating backdrop for Exonians studying abroad. While living just outside of Johannesburg, the country’s largest city, students attended the African Leadership Academy. There they took courses alongside peers from across the continent with a curriculum focused on academics, leadership and entrepreneurship. Exonians also participated in community service projects and travel within the country, including a trip to the coastal city of Cape Town.

In the coastal city of Tema, Exonians have attended SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College where students from SOS-run orphanages combine with students from Africa, Asia, Europe and the U.S to create a diverse student body at a truly international prep school. In addition to their coursework, Exeter students partnered with HGIC classmates on social service projects and immersed themselves in Ghanaian culture by exploring locally and traveling throughout the West African nation.
