Global Online Academy
UPrep partners with Global Online Academy, a consortium of over 70 leading independent schools in the U.S.and abroad offering UPrep students a collaborative, cross-cultural, transdisciplinary learning experience with peer institutions around the world. Upper School students may elect to take GOA courses, which are limited to 20 students, as part of their regular school program, earning full credit.
Faculty members from GOA schools (including UPrep) develop and teach the courses, which emphasize contemporary topics, project-based learning, and frequent communication with the teacher. A key component of GOA is acquiring the modern competencies required of students in an increasingly complex, networked society.
While students complete most work independently, and GOA courses do not have full class meetings, students do collaborate in real time with classmates and meet with their teachers via video call.
