When Chris Whittle set out to re-imagine education with the world’s first truly modern, global school, he wasn’t thinking in terms of the latest technology or the most eye-catching buzzwords. Instead, his vision for the Whittle School & Studios stems from the significance of human relationships and the opportunity to create possibilities for our children to become global citizens. Chris, like the rest of our founding team, believes that our world is in need of thoughtful innovation in the field of education and that the team we’ve assembled across Washington, D.C., New York, and Shenzhen has a unique opportunity to achieve something extraordinary: a truly modern school that connects cultures worldwide.

We look forward to watching and supporting our students as they blossom into true global citizens with minds that are as open as they are filled with knowledge. By creating this space for open dialogue, we hope that you, our friends, neighbors, peers, and community members, will join us in an ongoing conversation about the meaning of global education. We look forward to using this platform as a way to form meaningful relationships with members of our communities in D.C. and abroad. We invite you to join us on our journey as we expand our campuses across the globe and move forward in our mission to provide the future leaders of tomorrow with an education rooted in the merits and challenges of the world around them.
