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?
Social Justice Education
A home education rooted in social justice acknowledges that oftentimes our institutions fail to deliver on the promise of equal opportunities and rights for all, with stark differences among racial/ethnic groups, demographic groups, and across the gender spectrum.
A teaching methodology that keeps social advocacy front and center is essential for the future health of individuals, families, communities, and the planet and its other inhabitants.
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., Intro to Peace and Diversity Studies and Reflections on Peacemaking have emerged.

How our program works
At Global Village:
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. There is a wide variety of classes offered, including sustainability curriculum. Core subjects such as English, history, math, and science often contain peace, diversity, and environmental themes. Specialized courses such as The Buddhist Path to Peace, Planetary Stewardship, Reflections on Peacemaking, Intro to Peace & Diversity Studies, Global Spirituality and Activism, and a variety of other classes address current issues in the world and provide students with role models and examples of sustainable social change. GVS teachers assist each student individually and provide feedback, support, and documentation.
Global Village students engage in all sorts of activities for credit, including:
And so much more. If you can envision the seed of an idea, GVS can help you nurture it into existence.
