About Joann McPike

Joann McPike has dedicated her career to promoting cross-cultural understanding through international education. As the founder of THINK Global School, an experiential program that immerses high school students in international life, McPike works to introduce young adults to a cross-section of transnational cultures. In contrast to the traditional study abroad experience, which is based in one set location, Joann McPike’s school exposes its students to 12 distinct cities over the course of 12 academic terms. This challenging program incorporates the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, and all students complete the IB examination in their fourth year of study. Based on the principles of tolerance, humility, immersion, compassion, and knowledge, THINK Global School is a model of transformative education.

Joann McPike was inspired to begin THINK Global School while searching for a boarding school for her teenaged son. A New Zealand native who has traveled extensively, McPike was steadfast in the desire to enrich her child’s life through intercultural awareness. Upon researching a range of international programs, she and her husband elected to travel as much as possible with their son. After she observed the impact this had in shaping his interpersonal engagement skills and analytical reasoning abilities, McPike sought to bring similar opportunities to young people from across the globe.

Also a noted travel photographer, Joann McPike recently completed a coffee table book titled “THINK,” which features images taken around the world. In addition to her other commitments, McPike served as a member of the Board of the Lyford Cay International School, in Nassau, Bahamas. She has supported the Bahamian government in its attempts to repair the national infrastructure following the severe hurricanes of 2008 and 2011.
