As a member of Round Square, Hebron Academy is part of a global network of over 200 innovative schools in 50 countries. This network of schools collaborate and connect to offer world-class experiences and programs to Hebron students that increase global competence and develop character. Hebron Academy recognizes the strong connection between character education and academic success, and through participation in the active and vibrant Round Square student committee, attendance at regional and international conferences, and engagement in service learning trips, Hebron students come to know that they are capable of being a positive force for change in the world.
All Round Square schools share a belief in education that is centered around their IDEALS - Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership, and Service. These IDEALS are based on the educational philosophy of Kurt Hahn, who believed in the power of expeditionary learning to make lasting change. Hebron students have opportunities to engage with these IDEALS on multiple levels and challenge themselves beyond their perceived capabilities.
As Kurt Hanh famously said, “There is more in you than you think”.
