At GEMS World Academy Chicago, our mission is to inspire inquiring, knowledgeable, reflective, and intercultural learners to become morally responsible leaders with the skills and attributes necessary to create a more connected and prosperous world.
We believe that education extends far beyond the classroom's four walls. Each and every day, our students experience unique ways of learning that inspire new perspectives. They are infused with an excitement and passion that is unparalleled and enhanced by the innovative technology integrated into our state-of-the-art campus located in downtown Chicago. As Illinois' only private school offering an accredited International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme curriculum, our students grow through the strong connections they build with other students around the globe as well as frequent engagement with professionals and institutions in the rich cultural center of Chicago.
