Founded in 1966, Round Square maintains and facilitates a worldwide network of 180 schools in 50 countries. Founder Kurt Hahn was a German educator who believed that students could only really understand life by experiencing it in many exciting and challenging ways. By testing themselves, students would be able to develop their courage, generosity, imagination, principles and resolution. Ultimately they would develop the skills and abilities to become the guardians and leaders of the future. (Source, www.roundsquare.org)
