Kingswood Oxford School is a member of Global Online Academy (GOA), a consortium of leading independent schools from around the world whose programs offer our students a way to pursue their passions, learn with peers from around the globe, and acquire and relevant and exceptional learning skills that will serve them well in college and beyond.
GOA courses are courses taught by experienced faculty from renowned peer schools all over the world. This is a new kind of online class in which relationships and connections drive students to share their perspectives and learn from those of others.
The mission of Global Online Academy is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.
There are more than 70 high-performing independent schools in the consortium, representing four continents, four countries and more than 20 states. All GOA courses are taught by teachers who are currently teaching at a GOA member school.
GOA Courses and Teachers
GOA course workload and course intensity are equivalent to courses taken on campus. Unlike many online courses, students are actively engaged and collaborate on dynamic projects from other students around the world. Just like their classes on campus, they are expected to utilize time management to ensure they support the workload of all of their classes.
GOA maintains excellence through rigorous teacher training, building on the best practices and values of leading independent schools. They are committed to ensuring class sizes stay small so the best and most effective student-teacher relationship can be fostered and the maximum collaboration and interaction can take place.
