A Blended Eaglebrook Experience

Eaglebrook School is excited to share that we are partnering with Shang NancyFriends to provide an online learning opportunity blended with in-person extracurricular programming in China this summer. The program will take the place of the on-campus Global Leadership Program, and will run from August 2 - 13. Classes will take place from 7:00 a.m. EST to 10:00 a.m. EST. During the days, students will attend daily programming at the Shang NancyFriends facility, where students will have work time to complete homework, engage in athletics, explore art, have a sit-down lunch with faculty, and complete public service projects. The day portion of the program will take place 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. CST
The Digital Global Leadership Program is an online learning opportunity focused on English immersion combined with lessons on leadership through the lens of United States History, Public Speaking, and Literature. 

In classes, students gain a better understanding of the globalized world and their role in it. Challenging each student based on their skillset aims to help all students realize and appreciate their abilities while helping them to expand upon their innate talents. With an overarching goal of fostering greater confidence and more complete leadership skills, students will be aided in their quest to be impactful members of the world community.

The teaching faculty for the Global Leadership program will be composed of experienced regular Eaglebrook faculty. Below are some of the faculty members and their roles during the regular year who will be involved in this program.

Program Details

List of 4 items.

  • History

    History classes focus on the United States. They will examine three leaders that were instrumental in supporting international relations. Students investigate the leaders, identify their characteristics and seek to understand how and they were influential. Focusing on international relations provides the opportunity to understand leadership on a global scale empowering students along the way.
  • Public Speaking

    Public speaking classes allow students to understand the importance of self-expression. Through guided exercises, students hone their skills of public engagement. They engage with famous examples of leaders and speeches that moved audiences and they dissect how the individual was able to accomplish that feat. Gaining confidence in their ability to speak publically encourages their growth as leaders and will serve them well in their future learning. 
  • English

    English classes focus on reading short stories and responding to the literature. Students learn to share connections to common themes and discover the power of discussion between their classmates. With the focus on leadership characteristics, students will learn to analyze characteristics of a character and use textual evidence to support their ideas in writing.
  • Advisor Program

    Each student enrolled in the program has an advisor. Advisors help students navigate the program, and parents can contact them with questions or concerns. Advisors guide students through difficult times, help them celebrate successes, monitor their academic progress, and act as mentors. Advisors work in partnership with parents, teachers, and Shang Nancy Friends to make sure each child is getting the attention they deserve. Each week advisors will meet with their group and engage with an activity.
