Payton Prep was one of only 50 U.S. high schools chosen to receive the scholarships by donor Sheron Long and CIEE, Council on International Educational Exchange. Awards honor the schools’ commitment to developing global citizens and its enthusiasm for world language instruction.
Payton’s Global Connections intends to continue partnering with CIEE for the Global Navigator Scholarship. Please stay tuned for more travel and funding opportunities for the 2015-2016 school year!
