Our goal is simple: To educate and graduate the cultures of Lansing, one student at a time.


The mission of the Global Institute of Lansing is to provide appropriate educational options for refugees who have aged out of the public school system to complete high school and earn a diploma in an atmosphere of peace, respect, encouragement, and inspiration.
