Learning Locally, Thinking Globally

At GEMS World Academy Chicago, we leverage the International Baccalaureate framework to inspire students to learn locally and think globally, using the entire city of Chicago as an extension of the classroom. Our outstanding, experienced core faculty all hold graduate degrees, and our program is housed in some of the most inspired, cutting-edge learning facilities in Chicago. As part of a network of schools around the world focusing on developing the culturally competent leaders of tomorrow, we offer exchange and collaboration to inspire new perspectives, challenge convention and develop the resilience to embrace a future of unknowns. We have select seats available for the 2019-20 school year, and we are currently accepting applications for preschool through grade 12 for the 2020-21 school year. Apply now. We will be hosting numerous admissions events in the fall to give families a chance to get to know us.
