This Summer, The O’Neal School is excited to offer our partnership with Global Online Academy as an opportunity for High School level students! Please see the below information about the Summer at GOA information as well as their 2020 Summer Course Offerings. If you are interested

Summer at GOA provides meaningful learning opportunities for high school students to explore a passion or topic of interest during the summer months. GOA’s summer offerings include 14 of their most popular semester courses, along with 2 offerings designed as alternative options to yearlong high school course requirements - Geometry and Spanish I. As GOA summer offerings are condensed versions of their semester courses, students should expect a 10-12 hour per week
commitment, with an expectation of 15-20 hours per week for both Geometry and Spanish I. The summer term runs from June 15 - July 31, a 7-week intensive format taught by expert educators who are experienced and deeply skilled in teaching and supporting students both in-person and online.

Online learning at GOA focuses on relevant topics and ideas while providing hands-on coursework and opportunities for collaboration. Designed as highly interactive, GOA courses are predominantly asynchronous, so students have the flexibility to work at their own pace and time, with regular feedback and guidance from their teachers. The frequent use of online discussion tools and scheduled video conferencing allows students to build relationships and share experiences with peers and teachers around the world.
As GOA is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), we offer our summer program students credit for the course and an official transcript following completion. GOA Summer Program faculty uses the Canvas Learning Management system, providing students with real-time access to feedback and communication on their work. Grade reports from teachers are delivered to students and families at the midterm and end-of-term, and regular communication is shared throughout the course.
