Begin Your Global Schools First Journey

Global Schools First (GSF) is a recognition program for primary schools (K-6) worldwide that are committed to a whole-school approach to global citizenship education (GCED). The GSF program relies on passionate teams of teachers and school leaders to dedicate time and work together to complete a self-assessment of how GCED is integrated throughout all aspects of their school life. The teams respond to a series of open-ended questions and submit their completed Global Schools First Self-Assessment to ACEI for consideration. Following an intensive review by a group of education experts, schools demonstrating excellence and continuous growth in all areas are recognized by ACEI.

ACEI is currently seeking teams of teachers and school leaders who are supportive of and enthusiastic about global citizenship education to participate in a pilot test of the Global Schools First Self-Assessment. The pilot test will begin in fall 2017.

To receive more information about how your school can be considered for participation in the pilot test, please complete the form below.

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
