Freshman Experience in Cadiz, Spain
All freshmen are invited to participate in a two-week immersion opportunity in Cadiz, Spain, considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in Europe and surrounded almost entirely by water and easy to navigate for visitors. This global program is designed to introduce immersive foreign travel to Brewster students.
The curriculum focus is language, customs, history and the culture of Spain and Europe. Students are asked to focus their inquiry project on one aspect of culture that they are most interested in learning more about and are taught by Brewster faculty in partnership with our peer school, K2 Internacional School. Students live with Spanish host families that are associated with our peer school.
Cadiz is linked by rail to Sevilla, Cordoba, and Granada which serve as day trips and program destinations for the two week program.
The skills that students will learn through global programs at Brewster will provide them with an added depth of character and confidence that cannot be taught in a classroom.cindy guttman p'21
