The Silk Road curriculum sets students on an immersive journey across 7,000 miles and more than 2,500 years. It exemplifies Nueva’s commitment to interdisciplinary learning, as humanities, science, and writing are intertwined. Students are guided by key pillars of geography, economics, and belief systems that thrived and clashed along the complex networks of land and water routes from Italy to Japan. They research historic figures, read selected works from then and now, and embark on deep studies of species that thrived along the Silk Road. In a Nueva tradition, students bring their study to life through a bold and beautiful Silk Road Bazaar.
