CASIE expands innovative practices that educate for active global citizenship.
What is International Education?
CASIE defines international education as an education that prepares all learners to be active global citizens who believe that they can make a difference and have the skills to do so, at local and global levels, through language learning, cultural understanding and the ability to examine situations from a range of perspectives.
The Center for the Advancement and Study of International Education (CASIE) is a non-profit organization that promotes multi-language programs, the International Baccalaureate, and international understanding in K-12 schools in the United States and abroad. CASIE aims to strengthen the U.S. education system as it readies students for a more competitive global economy by equipping them with a broader world view and cross-cultural communication skills. CASIE recognizes the challenges facing the education system and promotes international education through several programs. CASIE believes in supporting educators’ work and all children’s access to education. The Center was created in the fall of 1999 at Atlanta International School by a group of trustees and educators who realized the need for such a resource in the region. CASIE offers a full range of workshops and consults with schools around the world in a wide variety of fields relating to international and multi-language education.
CASIE works with like-minded organizations to promote international education. CASIE’s partners include the International Baccalaureate, Project Zero (a research center of The Harvard Graduate School of Education), the Atlanta International School, the Washington International School, and Atlanta Public Schools.
