Welcome and thank you for your interest in Global Citizenship Experience Lab School.

GCE is an independent private high school unlike any other in Chicago.

At GCE, we use the City as a classroom to embolden a community of socially responsible citizens to respond courageously to the world’s biggest challenges.

In just a few weeks, our daily lives have changed dramatically. We are all navigating an unfamiliar landscape. Amid these challenges, GCE is enduring. As we practice connected learning, we intend to bring together students, families, and educators to provide experiential education from multiple locations.

The current public health situation is exactly the kind of global circumstance that animates our curriculum. Our sophomore Global Health sequence explores topics including public health and statistics, while our junior Global Government, senior Global Vision, and freshman Global Resources sequences investigate issues from a variety of perspectives providing insight into the world’s biggest challenges.

In this unprecedented time, I invite you to continue exploring GCE by connecting with me via email or phone and following us on social media for updated photos and videos. I’m more than happy to schedule a video chat to meet with you and answer any questions you may have to help you get the best understanding of GCE possible.

Our Admission process is comprehensive and our goal is to make this process as informative and stress-free as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at [email protected] or (312) 643-0991. I look forward to connecting with you soon.
