Download the Border Crossing Immersion Handbook

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.
