The mission of the Global Scholars Academy Extended Day Community Learning Center is to provide scholars with a variety of opportunities that ultimately will provide them with additional resources to be successful in life. Opportunities revolve around research-based approaches, both traditional and innovative in nature; i.e., a strong STEM program. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. Through the STEM approach, we will provide the scholars with tools to develop creative and systemic problem solving, collaborative networks, leadership abilities, and long-term strategic outlook.
