Global Village Academy Mission Statement Global Village Academy students will become fluent and literate in English and a second world language, excel academically in core content subjects, and develop 21st century skills, including cross-cultural understanding. Global Village Academy Vision Statement Global Village Academy is a world-class school that supports P-16 education in English and a second world language, and promotes college and workforce readiness in a global economy, as well as 21st century skills, including the ability to work in cross-cultural situations.
Global Village Academies are:
Free, public international schools with language immersion instruction in English and the choice of Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, French, German, or Russian.
Our students develop a GLOBAL perspective by learning a second language; exploring diverse cultures to cultivate understanding and respect; and by developing the skills to live and work with others internationally - all essential elements for life in the 21st century. With the world as the context for education, students need to find their place, their voice, and their dream. Our VILLAGE provides the support and the challenge to motivate students to excel in school and in life. Their success depends upon their own initiative and the support of peers, teachers, parents, and the wider community. The ACADEMY has always been a symbol of rigorous education, critical thinking abilities, and love of knowledge. Through structured inquiry students explore multi-disciplinary units that span each language village. These units integrate core subjects and encourage students to ask questions and make discoveries in their active search for knowledge.
