The Global Learning Collaborative's Full Profile



The Global Learning Collaborative says

The Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) values a very diverse population of students with a variety of talents, interests, and experiences to share. No matter where a student begins, academic rigor and high standards are expected of all. We have been described by many as being a small school with a big heart. This is because we are a relationship-based school where every student is known and cared for individually, and where opportunities are provided for each member of our learning community to work towards his/her highest ability. All of us within the GLC community strive to learn about the world around us, and what role we all play in making it a better place. Founded in partnership with The Asia Society, a distinguished organization dedicated to global education, our students may strive to attain the International Studies School Diploma.
