This short video produced by the De Forest School District provides an overview of the Global Education Achievement Certificate.

Wisconsin's Global Education Achievement Certificate

Graduating high school students who demonstrate a strong interest in global citizenship may earn the Wisconsin Global Education Achievement Certificate (GEAC).

They receive the Wisconsin Global Scholars designation by successfully completing a global education curriculum and engaging in co-curricular activities and experiences that foster the development of global competencies.

GEAC programs are administered by local high schools under programs reviewed and approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

The Department of Public Instruction generally grants approval to schools that demonstrate the availability of courses and extra-curricular opportunities required under the policy.

GWI continues to play an active role in promoting GEAC and supporting the high schools that are participating in the GEAC program.
