Global Online Academy

BB&N has joined Global Online Academy (GOA), a consortium of over 50 leading independent schools throughout the U.S. and abroad that will offer our students the opportunity to learn alongside peers across the country as well as the world.

"Schools offering new and different ways of learning is becoming more prevalent in the world today. For our students to have access to interesting, engaging, online courses added on top of our current curriculum is really appealing."
~ Geoff Theobald, Upper School Director


The mission of Global Online Academy is to replicate in online classrooms the intellectually rigorous programs and excellent teaching that are hallmarks of its member schools; to foster new and effective ways, through best practices in online education, for students to learn; and to promote students’ global awareness and understanding by creating truly diverse, worldwide, online schoolroom communities.

BB&N partners with Global Online Academy (GOA), a consortium of independent schools worldwide, to provide students in Grades 11 & 12 with the opportunity to enroll in online elective courses and earn credit. Global Online Academy courses are interactive, instructional, and experiential, with semester-long options in a wide variety of subjects, ranging from organic chemistry to poetry writing. All GOA courses have synchronous components (when students collaborate or work with their teacher at a set time, generally using video conferencing software) and asynchronous components (when students choose at which time to participate).
