International Opportunities

As a school whose mission is to prepare our students for college and beyond, The Tatnall School places an emphasis on the development of international understanding and empathy –important 21st century skills necessary for success in our increasingly interconnected world.

Travel Opportunities

At Tatnall, exploration continues on a global level. Tatnall students are afforded the opportunity to see the world and embark on journeys of personal growth, whether it’s performing at the Vatican as a member of the Concert Choir, traveling to France to improve his or her French skills or visiting Costa Rica as part of a science and Spanish immersion.

Tatnall has also formed a growing relationship with its sister school Skive Gymnasium & HF, in Skive, Denmark. Through this collaboration, Tatnall is able to welcome international students to campus while also allowing our students to visit a new country, learn about other education systems, and tour cultural sites. 

Students have the opportunity to visit the following countries and cities in recent years:

  • Guatemala
  • Denmark & London

  • Spain

“Tatnall is giving students the unique opportunity to consider their role in the community.”
