Global Studies Academy (Formally The Institute for Global and Cultural Studies Academy)
Wheaton High School’s Humanities Academy
is the Global Studies Academy?
Wheaton High School has one of the few Global
Studies Academy (GSA) in Montgomery County. This unique interdisciplinary
program prepares students to emerge into the workforce as culturally
responsible global citizens. Through the liberal arts and humanities-based
courses, which could include the performing arts, visual arts, and cultural
studies, students are exposed to global issues and are challenged to understand
and appreciate the many different cultures and histories of the world and its
people. GSA students are expected to think critically and solve real-world
problems through Project Based Learning. GSA motivates its academy students to
explore the endless possibilities in our world, develop a global citizenship,
prepare to be college and career ready, and be leaders in our global society.
