Globalization refers to the changes in the world where we are moving away from self-contained countries and toward a more integrated world. Globalization of business is the change in a business from a company associated with a single country to one that operates in multiple countries.

We want you to graduate from high school with a full understanding of the historical, social, economic, scientific, and technological components of the global age. To achieve this, you must be willing to ask questions, share insights, study, embrace challenge, and to give your time and energy to our campus and community. In return, you will graduate prepared for the finest universities and with the critical international understandings needed to engage and lead on a global level.
