An International Preschool-through-12 Academy

Welcome to GEMS World Academy Chicago

Learning Locally, Thinking Globally

Our preschool-grade 12 curriculum features a rigorous, internationally-recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) framework as a tool for students to explore not just science, math, humanities, and foreign language, but Chicago and the wide world beyond. 

In 2014, we joined GEMS World Academy Connect, a micro network of premier private schools educating the next generation of change agents. Our relationship with campuses in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Singapore, offers unmatched opportunities for exchange and collaboration with fellow students on projects to inspire new perspectives, challenge convention, and develop the grit to embrace a future of unknowns.

We currently have seats available in most grades for the 2019 school year. We will begin accepting applications for 2020 in July.
