Global Online Academy is an international consortium of leading independent schools that offers rigorous online courses and unites behind a common mission to; reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society. GOA imagines a future where all students acquire and practice modern learning skills to be global citizens. I bet you can see the connection between GOA’s and VIS’ mission.
By becoming a member school, VIS has both expanded future elective course offerings available to our secondary students and provided them with the unique opportunity to connect with students from around the world; we have joined a network of leading independent schools that is proactively defining this niche, creating new learning environments, developing a global community, and leveraging technology and modern learning skills to help students connect, share and learn.
GOA also enables our teachers to become part of an expanded network of outstanding independent school educators and to participate in extraordinary professional development opportunities. As a member, we can connect our faculty with colleagues around the globe who will share best practices and discuss new ideas that transform classrooms and deepen the learning experience for our students.
Given the shared purpose and values around quality teaching and rigorous standards, we know GOA courses maintain the high standards of quality of which we are proud; to that point, students will receive VIS credits that, in some cases, can be used to fulfill the VIS diploma requirements.
