What is the Global Scholars Academy?
The Global Scholars Academy is Houston’s premiere foreign affairs experience that is aimed at cultivating and inspiring students to a future in diplomacy. The Academy is for high school students ages 14 to 19. Each participant will experience the fire of critical thinking, global awareness, and practical problem-solving.
Also, it’s very fun!
