Palmer Trinity School has taken the urgent responsibility to prepare students for their life and work as citizens-and leaders- in a global world.
Global Education, therefore, is not an option. The School has certain starting advantages.
We are situated in multicultural Miami, and that is reflected in our student body – many of them bilingual and trilingual, and in our faculty.
We are a founding member of the Global Education Benchmark Group (GEBG), a national institution of independent schools that have leading global programs. In the spring of 2015, PTS hosted the GEBG International Conference with 200 participating schools from around the world.
Global Education Benchmarking Group (GEBG)
Palmer Trinity School has always maintained a commitment to diversity and is a founding institution of the Global Education Benchmarking Group (GEBG). Founded in 2008, GEBG was created to increase the emphasis of global education in schools across the United States. Through their mission, they aim to identify best practices in global education by collecting, analyzing, and sharing data from GEBG members; to promote the development of global education in schools through curriculum, experiences, and institutional support; to encourage global citizenship; and to enhance the knowledge and skill sets required to understand different viewpoints, in the world today, that will help us thrive and engage in increasingly interconnected world systems. Most importantly, as a result of their efforts, they have created a network of premier educational institutions, from all over the world, that work together to give high school students a chance to broaden their intellectual horizons through study abroad opportunities.
