GPA’s before school program provides breakfast for children, daily affirmations and time for them to study until their school bus arrives to take them to school. GPA’s afterschool program includes fun activities for children of all ages. As a safe drop-off location, parents can pick their children up without the worry of leaving them home alone after school.

Global Purpose Academy's (GPA’s) enrichment sessions provide children with the opportunity to learn and explore the world around them. Our international enrichment exposes children to various cultures and languages. We aim to teach children to respect our world (people & environment) and love another. We are also dedicated to help children by customizing bridge programs to ensure their success in the regular school year. Our bridge programs include a concentrated focus on math and literacy. We design creative and fun international themes to encourage children to love to learn. Our international enrichment sessions provide language education (Chinese Mandarin, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, & French) and cultural experiences including exploring different foods and entertainment (song / dance), participating in field trips, watching educational videos, speaking with others from difference countries (via technology), and in-class tours, “around the world.”
Global Diversity Program (GDP) is a youth cohort project where students participate in engaging bi-monthly evening (after school) and weekend meetings &/or activities. Students also experience and explore cultural, historic, humanitarian, and environmental field trips & travel.
This 10-month program is based on The Global Purpose Approach and assigned readings (articles & books) are a central part of the action-based learning students experience. The capstone includes a presentation and an action-oriented project related to how our youth may impact our local community (and our nation & world).
Students learn how to be better leaders based on their beliefs, faith, moral character, and values. They also understand how they can make an indelible impact in the community and make a difference in the world.
Youth experience a life changing program where they learn, are inspired, and have open discussions about differences and similarities in cultures, religions, races, and ethnicities.
1) GDP provides students with information and tools to effectively manage diversity. The Global Purpose Approach focuses on character traits (kindness, respect, empathy, and morality), thus reducing issues related to bullying, emotional hate, biases and/or ignorance.
2) For families seeking for ways to expose their children beyond homogenous spaces, GDP attempts to create activities where teens may be integrated with other teens different from them. They learn from one another and will hopefully build life long connections.
3) GDP addresses all forms of diversity including religious, LGBTQIAP, color, economic, gender, political, etc. It will provide teens with tools to build skills to be on a team with anyone who may be different from them.
4) Social justice and service are also integrated in the GDP. Youth will participate in community service projects where they may make a difference and help others.
