Global Online Academy 6/18 – 8/3
Grades 9-12
$250 Collegiate Fee
$750 GOA Fee

Global Online Academy is a not-for-profit consortium of 50+ independent schools from around the world. Started by a group of independent schools looking to bring the benefits of online learning to their teachers and students, Global Online Academy prepares students for a global future by providing new, modern ways for students to learn and teachers to teach.

Students take Global Online Academy (GOA) courses for credit at Louisville Collegiate School and the course is reflected in the student’s schedule and transcript. GOA allows schools to expand what they offer and help students test their passions in ways typically unavailable on a single campus. The courses are interactive, instructional, and experiential. All GOA courses have asynchronous components (students participate each day on their own schedule) and synchronous components (when students collaborate together or work with their teacher, generally using video conferencing software).
