• The Global Community Program at Roberts Academy

    We ensure our students realize their potential in a collaborative learning environment that promotes a lifetime pursuit of knowledge, self-worth, responsibility, and respect for self and others.

    Our new Global Community program deepens students' understanding of international issues and diverse cultures through classroom work and in-the-field experiences. The curriculum encourages our diverse student body to learn from each other and to become globally-minded problem-solvers.
