Learning while traveling has made me realize the span of what is possible- when you’ve climbed the tops of Africa’s peaks and talked with the world’s most esteemed scientists as a teenager, your definition of ‘impossible’ changes.

Going forward, TGS changed my mind about how I want to live my life. Although that sounds pretty intense, TGS showed me that there isn’t always one direct path you have to take.

About THINK Global School

Founder Joann McPike was inspired to start THINK Global School by her son, Alex. A world traveler with over 70 stamps in his passport by the age of 14, Alex wasn’t ready to stow his suitcase just to attend high school. Together, they envisioned a school that focuses on world travel, individualized learning, and positive change. Then, they brought their vision to life.
Today, THINK Global School is the only high school of its kind, offering full immersion in a dozen countries and cultures. We’re characterized by our unique Changemaker Curriculum, which shapes curious, compassionate global citizens with the knowledge and power to make a difference. If you’re a lean-forward learner who never stops asking questions, this is where you’ll shine.
