Abstract

This course linked capstone will focus on creating a residential life curriculum that is student centered, increases cultural competencies, and strengthens the community of the Wyoming Seminary Upper School. Many boarding schools have accepted international students into their schools to respond to a growing revenue need while simultaneously adding to a school’s diversity. The shift in student demographics has created a secondary level international education sector without many people specializing in this arena. Additionally, there has been a push to increase residential life resources in schools to help increase student support. With the drive for additional support and a growing international community within US boarding schools, Wyoming Seminary strives to design a residential life curriculum that serves the international and domestic student populations while simultaneously providing students with the social and emotional needs that they are not getting from their parents.
