The Academy formed a Global Awareness team this year.

Shayna a lovely YMCA staff member from the YMCA’s International Department came and introduced a number of Global Awareness issues to our school over a very well attended lunch hour session on May 23rd, 2013. A number of Academy students have elected to join the team. They will gather regularly to discuss Global issues and implement cross-curricular programming at the school.

The Global Awareness team’s first event will be held on Tuesday June 18th, 2013 here at The Academy. They will be hosting youth visitors from YMCAs across Columbia. The school will gather in a circle discussion to get to know the visiting youth, share their various experiences and exchange life- stories.

Stay tuned!
