Global Studies - A Window on the World
|Humankind now has the ability to know more than we have ever known about the world and this knowledge can be inspiring, overwhelming, transformational, or paralyzing. Today, our response to the intensifying global context of everyday life holds great promise for the future because we can choose to participate consciously in the world.|
At Colorado Academy, we are engaging in rigorous, cross-divisional conversations to position ourselves thoughtfully and responsibly amidst demographic shifts. We strive to nurture dynamic thinkers who are active citizens of the world through a curriculum that is anchored in the development of intellectual aptitude and character.
Colorado Academy alumna and founder of AfricAid, Ashley Shuyler ’03, and Colorado Academy world history teacher Paul Kim recently collaborated on a project that reveals the value and power of global education.
On My Way to School is a children’s book that grew out of a joint project completed by Losinoni Primary School, AfricAid, and First Person Publishing, which Kim started with a group of his former students.
Profits from the sale of the book go directly to education initiatives for students attending Losinoni Primary School in Tanzania where students generated the content for the story. For more information about On My Way to School, click here

“No matter what metrics we use to describe and measure changes in the world or how we choose to apply them, it is increasingly clear that knowing more about the world and knowing how to know more about the world is critical to living in the 21st century”
