Building the future together

We believe every learner should make an impact. Our approach is focused on building relationships that lead to deep learning and meaningful change.

Change requires all of us.

Our global effort to reimagine learning involves students, educators, and leaders.

What people are saying

  • GOA expands our course offer­ings, con­nects our stu­dents with oth­er tal­ent­ed young peo­ple around the world, and cat­alyzes use­ful pro­fes­sion­al growth for our fac­ul­ty members.” Michael Ulku-Steiner Head of School, Durham Academy
  • The inde­pen­dence required of stu­dents by an online course teach­es them a dif­fer­ent type of self-suf­fi­cien­cy and time man­age­ment than tra­di­tion­al class­room cours­es. The self-moti­va­tion involved is a pre­view of what stu­dents will need for suc­cess as undergraduates.” Kate Augus Director of College Counseling, Head-Royce School
  • We believe that GOA rep­re­sents our vision of both con­nect­ing our stu­dents to learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties around the world while pro­vid­ing our teach­ers oppor­tu­ni­ties to refine their 21st cen­tu­ry teach­ing skills.” Dr. Tarek Razik Head of School, Jakarta Intercultural School

Michael Nachbar Bio Thumbnail

At GOA, our mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.

When students and teachers reimagine learning, it challenges them to think differently about time and place, to implement new strategies for learning, and to make connections that prepare them for a modern world.

We empower students with competencies that serve them now and prepare them for college, career, and life. At GOA, we design experiences where students take ownership of the learning process, leveraging modern tools while working with a global community to learn deeply about the topics they care about most.

Working collaboratively, sharing their perspectives, and developing empathy for others helps everyone in our programs to thrive in a globally networked society. At GOA, we believe learning is about connections — connecting with new passions, new ideas, new people, and new skills.

Learn with us as we chart the next frontier of learning.
