Windward School strives to prepare our students for effective participation in the global community.
Through academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular opportunities to learn about different perspectives and cultures, students will utilize 21st-century skills, such as inquiry, collaboration, communication, leadership, and problem-solving. In doing so, Windward will ensure that it remains a welcoming and inclusive community whose graduates are knowledgeable, compassionate, and prepared citizens of the world. Beyond these goals for all students, Windward offers the designation of "Global Scholar" to those students who choose to deepen the global focus that is part of Windward's overall program.
