Yes, in 2013 King’s Academy began offering select schools the opportunity to become Arabic Year member schools. Brunswick School (CT), Deerfield Academy (MA), Lawrenceville School (NJ), Loomis Chafee School (CT), Pingry School (NJ), Friends Seminary (NY) and Greenhill School (TX) were the first to join. Member schools share an appreciation for a broad, liberal arts tradition; in addition, they tend to be globally-minded and forward thinking, encouraging their students to study abroad and learn through experience. Member school faculty and students are invited to visit King’s Academy to learn firsthand about the life and culture of the Middle East. These visiting groups are permitted to board on campus, sit in on King’s Academy classes, meet with King’s students and teachers, and use the school as a base for further exploration of the region. AY applicants from member schools are given priority in the admissions selection process.
