UWC-USA is one of 14 UWCs on five continents. Other countries that have UWCs include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Swaziland, and Wales.


UWC-USA students perform more than 18,700 hours of service every year through our association with 25 community partners. More than 2,500 people in Las Vegas, N.M. and the surrounding community have benefited from service projects led by UWC-USA students.


We have 211 students representing 73 countries, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Twenty-four students come from countries identified as conflict regions. Representation within our student body includes: Africa 12%, Asia 19%, Europe 26%, North America 24%, South America 7%.


Students don't apply directly to the school; they are selected by committees in their home countries based on academic achievement, leadership, and curiosity about and involvement with global events and cultures.


Philanthropist Shelby Davis has created a $40 million endowment that provides 50 U.S. students with full scholarships to attend a UWC every year.


Our nearly 3,000 UWC-USA alumni are spread across the globe. North America 48%, Europe 24%, Latin American & Caribbean 11%, Africa & Middle East 6%, Pacific 2%


UWC-USA offers 28 IB subjects. That number is remarkable, given the size of the school. The International Baccalaureate diploma is one of the most recognized high school diplomas in the world.
