The idea of World Citizens started at the 4 (Y)Our Kids Learning Center in Brooklyn, NY, then evolved into a course I taught in NYC Public Schools and today it has culminated into World Citizens Academy.

About WCA

We are a bridge between High School and College; giving students opportunities to travel and learn about college life abroad and career choices. Our model focuses on a blend of literacy activities, culture immersion, and reflection. With well thought out essential questions posed to increase critical thinking to improve students overall academic abilities.


 
We’ve all heard the stories about students being unchaperoned, drinking, wandering away from the group in a strange city, poor accommodations, etc. As a parent, I want to trust who my child is traveling with and I want to know that he/she are safe. I care for your child like they are my own! Our Mentors are Leaders in their profession/community and our groups are intentionally small. I will never compromise our safety, accommodations or travel plans for expediency.
— Arnitha Webb, Founder
