Round Square, India
Welcome to Ashbury College! This September, your child will join a group of 500 plus students in their next dynamic chapter of learning.

As you may know, Ashbury College is a member of Round Square, an international network of 200 like-minded schools around the world. Round Square is based on a set of shared IDEALS (Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership, Service). Round Square offers programs and experiences that will develop further global competence, character and confidence in our students. As such, your child is invited to apply to be a delegate at the next Round Square Conference at The Emerald Heights School in Indore, India, October 2-8, 2019. Last year, Ashbury College hosted this same international school conference which was a great experience for students.

If your child is interested in this incredible, life changing experience, please fill out our Google Form or contact teacher Eric Lavergne.
