The Academy for Global Citizenship offers a relevant, engaging and challenging educational program for all children, regardless of their learning differences. Students become environmentally and internationally minded by learning how their choices impact their community and ultimately the world. AGC places an emphasis on the total growth of the developing child by addressing social, physical, linguistic, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development. 

As a community of learners, professionals, families, and teachers work collaboratively to ensure our learning environment supports high achievement and fosters a love for learning. AGC respects and embraces the innate curiosity of children, the natural systems of the world, and the responsibility to make positive change.
