About The Academy of Global and International Studies

The Academy of Global and International Studies (GIS) at Leonardtown High School provides a rigorous, engaging education where students study specific curriculum related to world cultures, current affairs, history, literature, and languages. Students learn within a trans-disciplinary instructional model to allow regrouping and extension of lessons.

Students in the Academy of GIS are challenged by taking several Pre-AP and Advanced Placement (AP) courses each year of high school as well as specialized GIS designated courses that provide opportunities for students to refine their academic organizational skills, analytic inquiry, oral speaking and presentation skills as well as writing talents. GIS students also complete year-long project-based learning as part of their Capstone project, where they research and present information related to student service, global awareness or community activism.
