The 2007 Strategic Plan, Dalton resolved that “technology renders time and space variable.” The document also emphasizes the necessity to “further integrate global and interdisciplinary perspectives in our curriculum.” These tenets among others were catalysts in the decision to join other schools in founding this innovative and excellent Global Online Academy. Dalton's participation in GOA affords opportunities that enable our students and teachers to learn, collaborate and innovate with some of the best schools and educators around the globe. Our GOA students learn, collaborate and exchange new ideas with their diverse global counterparts. The program provides Dalton teachers a marvelous opportunity to engage in professional development for innovation in teaching. Finally, GOA offers unique courses not ordinarily available at Dalton and affords our students to work within their self-determined schedule, outside of the confines of time-space limitations. They can engage anytime and anywhere in which they have Internet access.
Dalton is actively engaged as one of GOA's founding schools, both in student and in faculty participation.
