Every student at South Loop is encouraged to be curious about the world and to grow into a responsible global citizen. They achieve this through not only our international curriculum, but also our charitable efforts and collaborations with prestigious organizations.

Local community support

South Loop students take part in a vast array of local charity events, both in and out of school:

By seeing first-hand the importance of giving back to the community around them, students can grow into kind and caring individuals. 

Global Community Engagement

Nord Anglia is proud to collaborate with UNICEF on worldwide relief efforts. Together we unite forces to provide educational opportunities for children in need.

Every year our High School Juniors take part in a citizenship expedition to Arusha, Tanzania, where they participate in service work with the local community. This teaches them numerous valuable life lessons such as tolerance and the value of seeing the world through the eyes of inclusive and diverse people. 


Creativity, Activity, Service & Enrichment (CASE)

CASE inspires our Middle and High Schoolers to develop their interests and passions beyond the day-to-day curriculum. Students focus on experiential learning, through which they uncover and hone new talents.

With CASE, your child has the opportunity to be challenged – and challenge themselves in ways they never thought possible. They learn commitment, perseverance and develop resilience which helps them bring their goals to life.

Both Juniors and Seniors complete a Creativity, Activity, and Service portfolio as part of their IB Diploma. This involves three interviews in which we explore what your child has done, why they did it, and what they’ve learned along the way. In fact, this course is so beneficial to personal development, we made it a graduating requirement for every student.
