GVS: Providing Progressive Education Options to the Homeschool Community Since 1999.
Global Village School offers progressive curriculum
Global Village School was founded to address deep progressive concerns about violence, discrimination, and our endangered environment. We are an international K-12 homeschool program that empowers students to cultivate their gifts and passions by engaging them in a creative, flexible educational process grounded in the progressive principles of peace, justice, diversity, and sustainability. We partner with schools, groups, and individual families to provide the kind of education that prepares students to be wise and capable stewards of the planet.
How our program works:
Global Village is a private school, which allows it to act as the official “school of record,” maintaining student files, providing written evaluations, issuing official transcripts, and providing diplomas upon graduation. We will provide curriculum (regular or customized) and individualized teacher support. Core subjects such as English, history, math, and science often contain progressive themes about peace, diversity, and environmental themes. GVS teachers assist students and provide feedback, support, and documentation. Families can also choose to purchase curriculum only, or to work with Global Village teachers on selected courses. We offer structured text and online courses as well as fully customized curriculum based on individual needs, interests, and learning styles. Families can also use our learning styles profile, whether or not they wish to enroll.
Students can earn elective credit for many different kinds of life experiences, such as travel, participating in cultural events, performing in community theater productions, pursuing a career in athletics or the film industry, or starting their own business.
I have to say you have been absolutely AMAZING, bending over backwards to help me through this transition, even suggesting purchasing from someone else if that would be better for me! In a business first world, you have demonstrated a whole new level of dedication to your parents and children, for that THANK YOU, cannot say enough.
