- Things to Do
GEMS World Academy Chicago is an independent private school in Chicago’s downtown area, serving students in preschool through high school. We use the International Baccalaureate curriculum framework for all grades. We are the only private school in Illinois offering authorized IB programs for preschool through grade 10, and we are a candidate school for authorization in the final IB phase, which covers grades 11 and 12. Our academic program also includes daily instruction in a world language for all students, creative use of the latest technology and a robust mobile-learning program called Field Studies, which turns the entire city into our campus. GEMS is part of the global GEMS Education network of schools, and we offer unmatched opportunities for students to live and work with peers at overseas schools. We are preparing the designers, innovators and global problem-solvers of tomorrow.
