Global Online Academy
Regina Dominican is a member of the Global Online Academy consortium of 100+ independent schools from around the world. Global Online Academy brings together experienced teachers and highly capable students in an interactive, rigorous learning environment. GOA's mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.
A GOA classroom brings together a variety of voices representing the geographical, cultural, and the ethnic diversity possible in a global online environment, emphasizing engagement, interaction, and collaboration among students and the instructor. Through their curricula, teachers aim to meet three main goals: to create and maintain meaningful relationships with, and among, students; to create opportunities for students to share their local and personal perspective on global issues; and for the work to be meaningful and rigorous. All classes contain both synchronous and asynchronous components, giving students the opportunity to connect in real time but also providing them with the flexibility to work when and how they would like.
Regina Dominican students in grades 10-12 undergo an application process and select either semester or year-long courses through GOA. Students receive credit for GOA courses on their Regina Dominican transcript.
