Global Scholars Academy

Vibrant Cultures – Diverse Perspectives – Meaningful Experiences 

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!

Students from PAIR (Participation for the Advancement & Immersion of Refugees) participate at the 2020 Academic WorldQuest.

It will be offered in-person in three sessions during the month of July. In-office enrichment will occur Monday through Thursday with community-based programming taking place on Friday.
