Sig Definition

A Signature is a 21st century workforce-relevant theme around which curricula, job shadowing, mentoring, co-curricular clubs, college courses, and internships are crafted. With a unique theme at each high school, Signature Programs are designed to excite, engage and prepare students for college and careers.


Global Citizenship at its BEST!




Arundel high school students were presented with a powerful opportunity to share a cultural experience, with students from Sagaminhara, Japan.  During the one week exchange, students were able to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities to complement the daily events of the American student.  The Art and FACS departments both sponsored after school activities and the National Social Studies Honor Society helped make them feel at home when they hosted a luncheon.  The relationships formed between the Arundel and Japanese students were both enriching and powerful to witness!

The experience this past week was truly the experience of a lifetime.  Both hosts and exchange students had a great time and were able to absorb each others cultures along the way. 

Additionally, thank you to the Step Team, Dance Ensemble, and Chorus programs for their support at the Welcome Ceremony!!
