The Global Scholars Diploma is a three-year program that develops globally competent High School students by building the awareness and skills needed to take action on a global issue and to become responsible citizens of the world. The first two years are spent at face-to-face events where local experts share their personal experiences with culture, jobs with global components, and issues around the world. Students engage in various collaborative activities within the theme of the event, learning and exercising their cultural fluency and competency.
YEAR 1: Focuses on building students’ awareness of diverse cultures, global careers, and global issues through face-to-face interaction with area experts and volunteers.
YEAR 2: Develops transversal skills such as cross-cultural communication, collaboration, and intercultural understanding through both face-to-face interaction with area professionals and experts and an eCourse focused on a variety of global issues.
YEAR 3: Prepares students to be college/career ready by guiding them through a year-long independent project in which they must take action on a global issue and implement a solution in their own local communities.
