Global Understanding


We will provide students with a global understanding that will enrich their learning and prepare them for success in a rapidly integrating and competitive world.



Our graduates need to be confident and successful in a global arena.


Our Beliefs

  • A worldwide focus throughout our curriculum will foster a globally minded community of learners.

  • Daily interaction and work with students of international origin and international students exposes our community to a fuller understanding of world cultures.

  • Achieving a high level of competency in a second language increases global understanding and fosters effective interaction in a global arena.

  • Service and study beyond the United States provide experiential learning that deepens global understanding.


  • Take full advantage of opportunities afforded by membership in the International Baccalaureate worldwide network of schools to maximize student interaction, instructional and curricular innovation, and professional development.

  • Formalize a Diversity statement in order to demonstrate the Academy's commitment to diversity.

  • Use our Centers for Experiential Learning & Innovation to promote overseas travel and study to enhance student learning outcomes and action.
