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).
