Courses in GOA's Student Program are led by expert teachers who are committed to knowing their students, connecting them to relevant academic content, and engaging them in rigorous work that deepens understanding and builds skills that matter in school and in life. GOA’s courses are rooted in competency-based learning. Visit the Summer Courses page for more information on GOA’s summer course offerings.

GOA’s summer membership is available to any independent, public, international, or charter school that is looking for meaningful summer enrichment opportunities for students. There is no cost to become a GOA summer member school.

What School Leaders 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. Student, 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
