What if school introduced you to exciting new possibilities and you got to choose what to learn?
What if school was a place where you could be yourself?
What if school was joyful? What if school was kind?
Have you been searching high and low for secular homeschool curriculum?
How can secular families provide their children with an education aligned with their values?
Global Village School can help.
Global Village will be the official “school of record,” maintaining student files, providing written evaluations, issuing official transcripts, and providing diplomas upon graduation. We will provide secular curriculum (regular or customized) and individualized teacher support. Families can also choose to purchase curriculum only, or to work with Global Village teachers on selected courses. Some secular families may wish to have us develop customized courses for them, and then work with it on their own. You can explore an entirely secular curriculum and you can blend in as much or as little historical study of religious and spiritual traditions as you like.
Families can make use of our learning styles profile, whether or not they wish to enroll.
What is secular curriculum anyway?
Secular science curriculum is of particular concern for many families. GVS science materials present scientifically accepted facts, theories, and models that explain how the natural world works. Coursework emphasizes a empirical, peer-reviewed, evidence-based knowledgebase with the understanding that our understanding is being continuously refined over time.
Global Village School and Secular Humanists share similar values and principles
Like Secular Humanists, we encourage critical thinking and value intellect and science. Our curriculum promotes an appreciation of open, pluralistic societies while offering service learning opportunities where students can learn and do something about injustice.
It is from this approach that Global Village courses such as Planetary Stewardship, Literature of Diversity, The History of Civil Rights in the U.S., Peace and Diversity Studies, and Reflections on Peacemaking have emerged.
"It has been great to witness all Eleni has learned from this class. I have been impressed when she shares or offers her opinion about a Global Spirituality topic, especially with adults. Thank you for offering this great class!"

Our Mission, Vision, and Values
How our secular homeschool program works
Global Village families choose between structured text and online curriculum; fully customized curriculum based on their individual interests, needs, and learning styles; or – for those who are already experienced homeschoolers – using their own curriculum. We offer a wide variety of classes. Core subjects such as English, history, math, and science often contain peace, diversity, and environmental themes. We also offer specialized courses such as Planetary Stewardship, Reflections on Peacemaking, Literature of Diversity, LGBT Literature, and a variety of other classes that address current issues in the world and provide students with role models and examples of peaceful social change.
GVS teachers assist each student individually and provide feedback, support, and documentation.
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. Global Village youth engage in a wide range of activities, including: studying anatomy, working on political campaigns, studying science at local national parks and wilderness areas, writing novels and screenplays, publishing alternative newspapers, learning their tribal language and traditions, and operating home recording studios. Many Global Village students get a head start on the next leg of their journey by enrolling in community college courses while working towards their high school diploma.
