The Global Online Academy (GOA), a nonprofit, international learning organization, empowers students, teachers, and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.
By partnering with leading schools from around the world, GOA offers courses that connect students and faculty to topics they care about and leverages digital tools to reimagine traditional learning environments, unfettered by space and time constraints. Today, more than 85 independent schools are consortium members, representing 16 countries and 25 states.
As noted in Dalton’s Strategic Plan, we aim to support and challenge our students to be ready to engage with the world.
As a proud, founding member of GOA since 2011, we provide our students and faculty members with the opportunity to learn and exchange new ideas with some of the best educators around the globe. Thanks to GOA’s one-of-a-kind classes and professional development courses -- not ordinarily available at Dalton -- community members can explore new ideas and deepen their passions, anytime, anywhere.
