Price Details
THINK Global School is committed to offering our unique model of education to all students regardless of their family’s financial status. We strongly encourage all interested and qualified students to apply.

Because diversity is at the core of our values, we don't expect all families to cover student expenses at the same level.

Instead, we base each student's contribution on their family's final situation. During the admissions process, families are asked to submit a detailed application with supporting financial documentation, which helps us determine need. When determining tuition for each student, we look at family income, assets, debts, and geographic standards of living before calculating a number that works for everyone.

Alumna review

I was a student between the years 2012-2015 (and studied with TGS in Argentina, Bhutan, USA, India, Tanzania, Japan, New Zealand, Costa Rica and Greece, in given order) in grades 10-12.

TGS is an amazing experience that you cannot find anywhere else. It has sincerely helped my personal growth immensely and challenged myself in multiple ways (as by immersing myself in English and learning Spanish, and living away from home under longer periods of time). I have great memories from every country we have studied in, although some more than others. Similarly, by travelling and living so extensively with people from all walks of life, I now consider people from across the globe to be some of my dearest friends (both students and staff) - even 3 years after having graduated.

When I was a student there, the school was still under the IB curriculum (The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme). This was a very challenging task for students, to combine both travels and studying this immensely academically challenging program. They've done their best to adapt a new program for the benefit of the students, as well as to re-use old cities that the school went to and instead doing their best trying to improve that experience for students.

If given the chance, I would definitely recommend anyone interested in exploring the world while still enrolled in high school to apply.

Truly the future of education

There are many programs that offer the opportunity for travel and experiential learning, but THINK Global School is the only one that offers students the chance to do it for their entire high school career. While the travel is probably the most alluring part of the school's experience, THINK Global School also spent two years developing it's own place- and project-based learning curriculum that places students at the center of their own learning, allowing them to gain mastery in the areas that they truly care about.

It's not just the countries that are diverse: THINK Global School's students come from all over the world, so the conversations are always filled with different viewpoints and insights, providing a global aspect that is hard (if not impossible) to replicate at other schools.

All in all, if you are looking for an education where you can learn in the world, not just about it, THINK Global School is the perfect school for you.

Educator Experience at THINK Global School

I have held a variety of roles at THINK Global School from Student Life Advisor, to Curriculum Developer, and most recently as an Educator. I have loved the chance to work in a dynamic environment where my ideas are valued and I am challenged every day to contribute to the forward-thinking educational model that we are developing. As a project-based and place-based traveling school, THINK Global School is a unique environment where Educators develop experiences and learn alongside students. We develop a rewarding relationship with our students as we facilitate their learning and guide them in life skills. We also work to develop a relationship with the communities that we locate in (this year we were in Maun, Botswana, Mumbai, India, Hiroshima, Japan, and Bilbao, Spain) - which is the most rewarding part of my work. Building a working relationship with local schools, guest speakers, and community groups is one of the best ways to immerse in the culture and really experience a country/city/village. I would highly recommend this experience for those who are interested in education, developing a global perspective, and making a potential impact on the future of the world.

Unrivaled Global Program

If you are curious about the world, strive to make lasting connections with diverse internationals and hope to immerse yourself in other cultures, no other program rivals THINK Global School (TGS). TGS is a unique place that challenges students through project-based, place-based learning, where students explore a host country’s historical, political and environmental opportunities. Whether learning “The Odyssey” while island hopping around Greece, tracking wildlife in the Greater Okavango Delta or building an e-commerce business in rural India, this program is as challenging as rewarding. As a TGS educator for 6 years, I can say this experience has changed my life for the better. TGS has inspired me to be better and do more, and has given me an unparalleled global network that feels like my forever family.
