Social Studies

Global Leadership Academy: Where Social Studies Shapes World Changers!

Our Social Studies classes are more than just lessons about the past; they’re a bridge to the future. Here, we explore the rich tapestry of human history, economics, geography, and government to understand the world we live in and how we can shape it. You’ll engage in critical thinking, debate, and collaborative projects that prepare you for active, informed citizenship.

Our name is our mission. As a student of GLA, you’ll learn how leadership has transformed societies and how you can apply those lessons to make a positive impact. From the ancient civilizations that laid the foundations of our global community to the modern movements that challenge us to think differently, our courses connect you to the global narrative.
