The Andover Newton Border Crossing Immersion Handbook includes information about an important component of the new curriculum. The Border Crossing Program provides students with opportunities to confront the challenges of a social context other than their own by immersing themselves in an unfamiliar setting. This experience is intended to facilitate social analysis, theological reflection, deeper self-knowledge, and the development of multicultural sensitivity and skills.
