Have you ever wanted to explore classes outside of Greenhill’s curriculum? If so, maybe the Global Online Academy (GOA) is right for you this summer.

GOA is a nonprofit consortium of more than 85 independent schools worldwide. The nonprofit was started by a group of independent schools looking to bring the benefits of online learning to both students and teachers. The organization allows primarily juniors and seniors the opportunity to apply and participate in unique courses through virtual classrooms during the summer or school year. As part of the Greenhill curriculum, all GOA classes are considered part of a student’s normal academic class load and will appear on the student’s transcript.

Greenhill is offering Upper schoolers the opportunity to take one of 16 distinct courses during the 2020 summer. These seven-week summer programs will run from June 15 – July 31. Here are the specialized courses below:
