New Mexico offers incredible opportunities for active learning. GLF lessons take us through a stunning landscape and expose students to a rich and diverse culture that spans ancient and modern and includes Native American and Hispanic communities.
The GLF journey begins on the UWC-USA campus, located near the small city of Las Vegas, and moves to Santa Fe, New Mexico, the oldest capital city in the United States. Known for its cowboy traditions, Hollywood movie productions, famous art market, and Indian Pueblo communities, Santa Fe was the first U.S. city to be designated a “Creative City” by UNESCO. In addition to arts and culture, the city is known for its entrepreneurial and creative small businesses, as well as its variety of high-tech labs and “think tanks.” GLF draws on these resources to create its highly unique program.
UWC-USA is part of a system of 14 schools on five continents. In 2010, UWC-USA was ranked a “Top Ten Program” by U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy for an innovative program similar to GLF. The Wall Street Journal ranked UWC-USA in the “Top 20 Schools Worldwide” for its record of matriculations to the most selective universities, including Harvard, Princeton, MIT, and Stanford.
