• GSA Program Requirements 

    The Global Studies Academy (GSA) exists to equip students to effectively solve the challenges society will face in the future while developing multi-faceted global citizens. Students are empowered to become innovative global thinkers who celebrate diversity. The Academy promotes global citizenship by focusing on languages, culture and current events. The Academy also fosters leadership by exposing its members to a variety of situations from a globally-integrated perspective while offering opportunities in student government, community service and cultural awareness activities.
    As a result, program requirements are continually reviewed and evaluated to ensure that we are meeting the diverse needs of our students and community. Please refer to the appropriate page to see your student's program requirements.
