Global Scholar Diploma

The FVS Global Scholar Diploma challenges students to develop an international perspective through a curriculum and set of experiences that focus on global understanding. Students who earn the GSD will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to grasp the nature of global interdependence, and pursue education and careers in the international arena. GSD students and faculty collaborate in moving beyond mere tolerance of diversity in our school and local community to genuine engagement as school and world citizens.
