As the world grows more connected and intertwined, we find ourselves faced with exciting opportunities and boundless challenges. We recognize that we are as much citizens of the world as of our own country. With that knowledge comes a responsibility to understand how the world affects us, and how we, in turn, affect it.
To engage with the 21st century, students must possess the knowledge, skills, and character to embrace difference, solve problems, and effect change. To this end, Camelot has identified coursework and extracurricular activities that will focus on developing such abilities.
Upon successful completion of Camelot's Global Studies Certificate Program, students will receive a certificate and notation on their transcript.
The Global Studies Certificate Program is open to students entering 10th or 11th grade who are excited to engage in global topics and are driven to push themselves.
These requirements will help students to develop the skills and character needed for global citizenship, and will allow them to:
