Summer at GOA

Summer online courses for high school students

Flexible, meaningful, and passion-based courses to enrich your summer.

Small, engaging online courses

Our small online summer high school classes are guided by expert teachers, many from GOA member schools. Students come from many different schools and share a passion for the subject. They build relationships with teachers and classmates through frequent, mostly asynchronous discussions and collaboration.

Teachers design and publish coursework and calendars, and students can, within that framework, work on their own schedules.

Global online learning that matters

At GOA, online learning is not about video-watching and quiz-taking. Learning at GOA is about relevant, hands-on ideas and coursework. Students log in multiple times a week to join discussions, work together on projects, and design their own ways to show their learning.

Summer Classes 2022

GOA is offering 20 of its most popular semester classes in an intensive 7-week format. Most of these courses cover a semester's worth of material and expect a 10-12 hour per week commitment from students. For Geometry or Spanish 1, which are designed to replace yearlong high school courses, students should expect to dedicate 15-20 hours per week. We are running two summer terms in 2022.

Summer 1: Tuesday, June 14, 2022-Monday, August 1, 2022

Summer 2: Tuesday, July 5, 2022-Monday, August 22, 2022

Enrollment remains open until June 16 for Summer 1 and July 7 for Summer 2.

GOA courses are primarily asynchronous, meaning that students do not need to attend pre-determined class meeting times. Instead, teachers design and publish coursework and calendars, and students can, within that framework, work on their own schedules.

All courses below are offered in both Summer 1 and Summer 2, except Spanish Language Through Culture 1.

What People Are Saying

  • My daugh­ter loved her GOA class. She found it to be very rig­or­ous, which was exact­ly what she was hop­ing for in this class. Her teacher was in a dif­fer­ent coun­try and class­mates were around the world. To learn from and col­lab­o­rate with peo­ple from all over the world was an amaz­ing experience.” Erin O'Neill Parent
  • I took Micro­eco­nom­ics and had so much fun. I loved get­ting to know peo­ple I prob­a­bly would have nev­er have crossed paths with oth­er­wise. I liked being com­plete­ly in charge of my learn­ing and hav­ing a sense of inde­pen­dence but also know­ing that my teacher was there to help if I need­ed it.” Alex Student, Head-Royce School
  • Med­ical Prob­lem Solv­ing 1 was the first GOA course I’d ever tak­en. I was able to con­nect with peers liv­ing all over the world and learn about the dif­fer­ences in health­care from every­body’s first­hand experience…Not only did I fur­ther my under­stand­ing of anato­my and biol­o­gy of the human body, I learned even more impor­tant lessons in empathy.” Sanya Student, Buckingham Browne & Nichols School
