Global Online Academy: Learning Around the World
Blake is proud to be a member of the Global Online Academy (GOA), a consortium of schools that connects students from all over the world, bringing them together around a rigorous curriculum taught by top-notch teachers from those same schools, preparing them for interactions and a future world only glimpsed today.
The mission of the Global Online Academy is to replicate in online classrooms the intellectually rigorous programs and excellent teaching that are hallmarks of its member schools; to foster new and effective ways, through best practices in online education, for students to learn; and to promote students’ global awareness and understanding by creating truly diverse, worldwide, online schoolroom communities.
As described on the GOA website:
- "Online learning is strengthening schools around the globe. By teaching our students 21st-century learning skills we can prepare them to be global citizens who can communicate with people who have backgrounds different from their own; who can collaborate effectively with peers in other states or even on different continents; who can advocate for their own learning; who can publish their work and ideas in a format that will preserve their work in perpetuity; and who know how to be creative, flexible, proactive learners. Being successful in college and beyond will require each of these skills, but teaching them in a traditional classroom setting is often challenging or not feasible. Online, these skills are taught directly and used regularly."
