Global Education

Global Education at Ventura Charter School provides students with the knowledge, skills and awareness to think critically. We seek to transform our community's local and global consciousness by teaching cultural diversity, nonviolent communication, respect for the Earth and others, and social responsibility. This process involves making connections, raising awareness, building respect and providing opportunities for activism.


It is our goal to prepare students to think, speak, and write about political, economic, environmental, social and cultural developments in the world with confidence and to value democratic rights and responsibilities, freedoms and obligations. Learning about the history, cultures, and belief systems of people who share the globe engenders respect and understanding.
