A Preschool-Grade 12 Independent School in Heart of Downtown Chicago

Group 17-1
Learning Locally, Thinking Globally

At GEMS World Academy Chicago, the International Baccalaureate framework inspires students to learn locally and think globally, using the entire city of Chicago as an extension of the classroom. Our outstanding, experienced core faculty all hold graduate degrees, and our program is housed in some of the most inspired, cutting-edge learning facilities in Chicago. As part of a network of schools around the world focusing on developing the culturally competent leaders of tomorrow, we offer exchange and collaboration to inspire new perspectives, challenge convention and develop the resilience to embrace a future of unknowns. Which has never been more important than in our current environment.

We are currently enrolling admissions with select seats available for the
2020-2021 school year.

Please join us for one of our virtual events until we can welcome you back to our campus for an in-person event.
