Global Online Academy Summer Program



University Prep is pleased to partner with Global Online Academy (GOA) to offer summer courses, June 14 – July 30, for high school students (rising 9th graders through seniors) interested in exploring a passion or topic of interest during the summer months. GOA’s mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally-networked society.

Summer GOA classes will offer a 7-week intensive format taught by expert educators who are experienced and deeply skilled in teaching and supporting students both in-person and online. GOA’s summer offerings include 21 different classes, listed below. The cost is $1000-$1,200 per course. Students should expect 10-15 hours/week of coursework and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.

About GOA

UPrep partners with Global Online Academy, a consortium of over 150 leading independent schools across 31 states and 27 different countries, offering students a collaborative, cross-cultural, transdisciplinary learning experience with peer institutions around the world. GOA focuses on relevant topics and ideas, while providing hands-on coursework and opportunities for collaboration. Designed as highly interactive, GOA courses are predominantly asynchronous, so students have the flexibility to work at their own pace and time, with regular feedback and guidance from their teachers. The frequent use of online discussion tools and scheduled video conferencing allows students to build relationships and share experiences with peers and teachers around the world.


All registrations received by April 30 are guaranteed a spot. Questions? Please contact Anne Bingham, UPrep’s GOA Site Director, at
