Global Online Academy


The Global Online Academy (GOA) is a consortium of independent schools that have joined together to offer an academically rigorous online curriculum taught by carefully selected faculty from member schools.

The GOA Mission: "GOA reimagines learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society."

“The Global Online Academy offers incredible opportunities for students to pursue interests outside of the typical high school curriculum. Better still, it harnesses 21st century technology and skills to maximally enhance those learning opportunities.”

--Rich Parsons, Branson's Director of Studies



"GOA offers high school students the chance to explore topics they care about in a highly collaborative, global learning community, building the skills they'll need for college, career, and life."
