Global Online Academy Community

There are more than 125 high-performing independent schools in the consortium, representing 30 countries and more than 30 states in the U.S. All GOA courses are taught by teachers who are currently teaching at a GOA member school.

Reimagining Learning

Imagine a different kind of online learning experience, one in which learning is active, meaningful, and collaborative; A virtual environment that is intentionally and flexibly designed to encourage communication and engagement in a variety of modalities, at different paces, and across time zones. Where learners from different parts of the world come together to share diverse perspectives, exercise their agency, build community, and foster empathy while challenging themselves in ways that are both independent and interdependent.  Where passion and curiosity drive the choices that are made. Where making a difference, or responding to a call to action, lies at the heart of where students go with their learning.  It’s experiences like these that the Sewickley Academy (SA) hopes to engender through its newly established partnership with Global Online Academy (GOA).
