Global Scholars Program

Program Overview

Windward’s Global Scholars program challenges students to become knowledgeable, compassionate, and active citizens of the world. Through an approved course of study, combined with out-of-class experiences, students in 10th through 12th Grades may pursue their deeper interests in topics of global interdependence in a way that is most relevant to the 21st century.

Upon completion of the program, students who earn the designation of "Global Scholar" on their transcripts will have demonstrated the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to maximize their participation as global citizens.

Program Goals

Windward School strives to prepare our students for effective participation in the global community with a program that offers opportunities, both inside of the classroom and out, to learn about different perspectives and cultures while utilizing 21st century skills such as inquiry, collaboration, communication, leadership, and problem-solving. In doing so, Windward ensures that it remains a welcoming and inclusive community whose graduates are knowledgeable and compassionate 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.
