Peoria Academy’s Global Leadership Summit (2012- present)

The PA’s GLS is an annual event organized and hosted by Peoria Academy International Families Committee (“IFC”) and Peoria Academy’s Middle School.  For the past seven years, Peoria Academy has invited middle school student ambassadors from all over the greater Peoria and Central Illinois regions to engage in its summit to learn about and discuss current topics especially relevant to its own and invited aspiring student leaders.  Each school sends six student ambassadors from sixth through eighth grade to participate in the GLS.   Homeschoolers and non-traditional schools also participate.
