Our Mission & Vision
Global Educational Excellence (GEE) empowers “academies of choice” by nurturing academic excellence, positive character traits, and an appreciation of cultures
The vision of Global Educational Excellence is to have a school where all students are entitled to reach their highest potential through a meaningful educational experience. Our academies are placed in diversely rich, international communities with aspirations of a better future for themselves, and their children, via education and support. Parents are partners in the learning process and educational success.
Global Educational Excellence (GEE), an education management organization, was founded in 1998. GEE is dedicated to offering exceptional schools of choice to the communities it serves. Our academic model aims to prepare students for college and career readiness. We at GEE believe that by training students to become global thinkers we will be creating “citizens of the world” – young people who are responsible, active participants in their local, state and national communities, as well as in the broader international community. The vision for GEE is to create challenging learning environments that encourage high expectations for success. By hiring the highest quality staff and developing appropriate instruction and pedagogy, GEE allows individual students to embrace their differences and accommodate different learning styles. GEE promotes a safe, disciplined, caring, and supportive environment. Each student’s self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships between students and staff. We strive to engage parents, teachers, and community members because each group is actively involved on our students’ learning process.
GEE promotes mastery of the 21st century skills – literacy, integration of technology, problem solving, and inquiry thinking. Our philosophy is anchored in our strong belief that learning must be student-centered within an active learning environment that promotes the development of the whole person. GEE views education as a journey. Through cognitive, experiential and emotional engagement, children’s social, cultural and moral development can be fostered and nurtured. In addition, the GEE mission focuses on what it considers to be essential character traits for the development of the whole child: respectful, responsible, tolerant, collaborative, creative, curious, empathetic and ethical. It is the goal of GEE to graduate students with the skills and character traits needed to be successful in college, work and life.
