Founded in 2005, the Academy for Global Citizenship is a Chicago Public School, incubator of educational innovation, and teacher training institute that has scaled its educational model to train over 10,000 educators and has impacted 5 million students globally.
With a mission to cultivate the next generation of mindful leaders, AGC is reimagining the future of learning through its whole-child learning model that is rooted in social justice, environmental education, entrepreneurship, dual language learning, and wellness.
As an International Baccalaureate and Dual Language elementary school, our inquiry-based model provides an opportunity for learners to engage in experiential, nature-centric, and hands-on learning.
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.
