• The Global Leadership Program - an EHS Academy

    The Global Leadership Program prepares Essex High School’s next generation of global leaders.

    The innovative four-year program focuses on three core competencies: global studies, cross-cultural competency, and leadership development. Students grow through globally-focused interdisciplinary coursework, internships with Vermont companies and organizations, and experience-based academic learning beyond the traditional classroom. 

    GLP is designed for students who wish to prepare for study, travel, and work in an increasingly competitive and global economy. The program involves a flexible combination of globally-focused coursework, internships, events, and activities that are customized to students’ personal, academic and professional goals.

    Upon graduation, students receive a GLP endorsement on their diplomas to recognize and reward their pursuit of learning and experiences in fields with an international dimension. Students in all grades may apply.
