Global Communications Academy IB
We are an International Baccalaureate World School, preparing our students to become first class global citizens. We offer a rigorous academic curriculum with three embedded themes: global issues, global systems, and global cultures. Our purpose is evident in our logo and thematic units of inquiry.
We are authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme in grades K-5.
Global Communications Academy is an international school model, which enables all students to be highly prepared for college. Global Communications Academy develops the intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills students need to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
Students will learn Spanish as a second language beginning in kindergarten.
Students will receive academic counselling, college and career exploration, college readiness workshops, and a Saturday Academy.
The school is designed around three major components: the IB Primary Years program for grades K–5 was authorized in the summer of 2013. The Middle Years program for grades 6–10 and the Diploma program for grades 11 & 12 are under development. All will be offered at one campus site.
Global Communications Academy had the highest CMT gains in the district in 2013 and moved into a brand new facility on Edwards Street.
All classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including I pads and SMART boards.
We have a partnership with Hartford Performs that allows students to learn across content areas through the visual and performing arts.
After School Programming is provided in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Hartford.
