Begin Your Global Schools First Journey

Global Schools First is a recognition program for primary schools (K-6) worldwide that are committed to integrating global citizenship education into all aspects of their school. The program relies on teams of passionate teachers and school leaders to dedicate time to review the current state of global citizenship education within their school. This review is done through a comprehensive self-assessment process in which the teams collaboratively respond to questions from the Global Schools First self-assessment guide and then submit their completed responses to ACEI. Following an intensive review by our team of education experts, schools demonstrating outstanding achievements in global citizenship education are recognized by ACEI.

The testing phase of the Global Schools First recognition program will begin in May 2017. ACEI is currently seeking teachers and school leaders who are supportive of and enthusiastic about global citizenship education to serve as reviewers and offer feedback on the self-assessment guide. The review process will take place from May-July 2017.

We are also seeking teams of teachers and school leaders to participate in a school-level test of the recognition program from September-December 2017. We welcome individuals who would like to participate in both the self-assessment guide review and the school-level pilot test.

Education gives us a profound understanding that we are tied together as citizens of the global community, and that our challenges are interconnected.
— Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General
