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 18 of their most popular semester courses, along with two offerings designed as alternative options to year-long high school course requirements – Geometry and Spanish I. The Academic English Accelerator is a new 2021 offering for students who are nearing English proficiency and may need additional support with written and oral communication in their coursework. 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 14 – July 30, 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.

*GOA is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and independently provides credit for the course and an official transcript through the program.
