What our Schools and Students Have to Say

  • We are always excit­ed for the oppor­tu­ni­ties that par­tic­i­pa­tion in GOA sum­mer pro­grams pro­vide for our stu­dents. The chance to con­nect with stu­dents and edu­ca­tors around the world, about top­ics that are engag­ing and mean­ing­ful to our stu­dents, is some­thing we are so grate­ful for.” Trish Caley Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Faculty
    Punahou School
  • Pri­or to tak­ing a GOA course I had lit­tle inter­ac­tion with indi­vid­u­als in dif­fer­ent time zones or areas of the world. GOA opened my eyes to the wide array of expe­ri­ences and per­spec­tives that can come from students…I’ve been able to share opin­ions, as well as respect­ful­ly dis­agree, on a reg­u­lar basis despite being in com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent locations.” Amelia Grace W. The Bush School
  • Our sum­mer part­ner­ship with GOA has allowed us to offer addi­tion­al enrich­ment cours­es for our stu­dents over the sum­mer months. These cours­es are engag­ing and rel­e­vant, and the pre­dom­i­nant­ly asyn­chro­nous for­mat allows stu­dents to take their course from any­where, which gives stu­dents and fam­i­lies flex­i­bil­i­ty when mak­ing their sum­mer plans.” Emily Coppersmith Director of Eliot Summer Academy
    Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School
