Global Online Academy

Today, most corporations have overseas divisions, so one needs to be culturally competent with the ability to communicate across time zones. Students get a taste of that world when they work in teams across continents through GOA." Ragini Narasimhan, Science Teacher and GOA Advisor

UPrep partners with Global Online Academy, a consortium of over 150 leading independent schools across 31 states and 27 different countries, offering UPrep students a collaborative, cross-cultural, transdisciplinary learning experience with peer institutions around the world.

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.
