Alvord Center for Global & Environmental Studies
Global & Environmental Studies courses and extracurricular offerings at Loomis are built upon a recognition that our world is interconnected in a multitude of ways.
In order to prepare our students to be leaders and agents of positive change in this global civilization, Loomis offers a course of academic study, extracurricular activities, and experiential learning through our Global & Environmental Studies Certificate, International Education Programs, and Environmental Sustainability initiatives.
We may refer to our school as "the Island," but opportunities to learn about the world and how to play an active role in it abound at Loomis.
