Wheaton High School’s Humanities Academy

 

 What 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.
