What is Round Square?

Educators internationally understand the need to prepare young men and women for an ever changing world. They recognize that academic pursuit, whilst vital, is no longer sufficient to prepare the youth of today to be the adults of tomorrow. This is not a new notion and there have been volumes written on this subject. Indeed it is from such a challenge that the Round Square Schools Organization has its origins.

The search for a common understanding and approach to this situation is not without difficulty. If one were to compare schools on a global scale, one would discover as many differences as similarities and uniting such diverse communities into a common purpose would be challenging indeed. However, Round Square as an organization actively addresses this issue through a philosophy of international understanding, democracy, environmental stewardship, adventure, leadership and service.

Round Square has its foundation in the theories of the experiential educational philosopher Kurt Hahn, who believed that schools should have a greater purpose beyond preparing young people for College and University. Hahn believed that it was crucial for students to prepare for life by having them face it head on and experience it in ways that would demand courage, generosity, imagination, principle and resolution. He believed that given the appropriate set of circumstances and the correct attitude, young men and women could discover their own inner strength and an understanding of the physical and social world around them.Round Square is an organization embodying this educational revolution.

All member schools share a strong underlying belief: this is the view of learning by doing. It is an ongoing process involving a fundamental objective of the full and individual development of every student into a whole person, academically, physically, culturally and spiritually, within the supportive environment of a school community.

Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment, beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility. This is achieved by participating in community service, work projects, exchange programs and adventuring, which can, and often does, take students half way around the world.
