Global Village Receives Grants for Earth Charter-Based Curriculum

Global Village School recently received grants from Wishworks Inc. and two anonymous family foundations. The grants will support development of a new K-12 curriculum centered on the Earth Charter, a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society. The Global Village Curriculum will be formatted for use by schools, groups, and homeschoolers, and will combine a creative, flexible, student-centered approach with a learning styles focus. Modern media, technology, art, music, nature, imagination, and story will be integrated into the courses.

Global Village School has provided an accredited, customizable K-12 homeschool diploma program to students around the world for 9 years. GVS offers online and text-based courses, personalized curriculum options, and individualized teacher services. Grounded in the belief that knowledge and understanding are the keys to a true global community, GVS offers a full diploma program and college preparatory classes that empower students to be wise and capable stewards of the planet and each other.
