Global Scholars Institute

The Global Scholars Institute, unique to Oakbrook Preparatory School, is a rigorous curriculum path designed to help students develop a depth of knowledge in specific content areas that will prepare them to excel in an increasingly global society. The Oakbrook community is diverse; there are numerous families at Oakbrook who conduct business regularly in Asia and Europe. Some of our students choose to study abroad, take a gap year, or do an internship overseas. The Global Scholars Institute opens the doors to opportunities abroad by allowing students to earn the Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID). The APID is a universal endorsement of high academic standards accepted worldwide by institutions of higher education. GSI graduates receive special recognition on their transcripts and an award at graduation signifying their outstanding academic accomplishment.

  1. Languages: Two AP exams from two different languages selected from English and/or world languages
