Global Scholars

Global Scholars

Today’s youth live in a rapidly changing, increasingly connected and interdependent world. It’s time to address these changes with educational experiences that prepare students for this global landscape. The goal is

cross-cultural understanding by engaging youth in collective problem solving about important common issues that will determine our shared future. Global Scholars is an international online learning program that connects students in cities around the world and prepares them to become the next generation of global citizens. Engaging in activities both in the classroom and online, students ages 10-13 interact with their international peers, develop 21st century skills, and ultimately gain a broader perspective on the global world in which they live.

Unit 1 - Meet the 2020 - 2021 Global Scholars

Exemplary Unit 

We were recently contacted by the Global Scholars team, in New York City, to inform us that our Unit 1 project is ‘an exemplary unit’. They said: 'Your students have created an excellent project that provides insightful information about the school, its tradition, and its appreciation for diversity.' Our project is now being shared globally as  a strong example of student work. Well done to our Global Scholars team. We look forward to continuing to exceed expectations. Non Excidet!
