Global education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning the content, concepts and 21st century skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly interconnected and culturally diverse world.  The DCPS Global Ed Program works with school leaders and partners to provide students with an understanding of world languages, global cultures and international issues, cultivating students’ global competence. 

DCPS Global Ed programs include PK-12 instruction focused on world languages and cultural competence; international travel opportunities; aligned, rigorous global programs across content areas; and global studies academies.

At DCPS, we believe that all students, regardless of background or circumstance, will graduate prepared for success in college, career and life.  A key component of this success demands that DCPS students graduate as globally competent individuals; the goal of the DCPS Global Education program is to cultivate this global competence in all students.  A globally competent DCPS graduate is an inquisitive, informed and active global citizen who investigates the world, recognizes perspectives, communicates ideas, and takes action.
