Global Online Academy

Reimagining learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society
The John Cooper School partners with the Global Online Academy (GOA), a nonprofit consortium of leading independent schools from around the world whose programs afford our students additional opportunities to pursue their passions, learn with peers from around the world, and expand their interests. GOA courses also help students acquire and practice relevant and important skills that will serve them well at college and in their career and life.

GOA courses are our courses, taught by experienced faculty from renowned peer independent schools all over the world. The courses foster caring relationships and connections, and students will be able to share their perspectives while learning from others. Cooper faculty members also have the opportunity to participate in GOA's world-renowned professional learning programs as they seek to continuously improve their practice as educators.

From Curiosity to Wisdom
The John Cooper School is an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational, college preparatory day school. Our mission is to provide a challenging education in a caring environment to a diverse group of select students, enabling them to become critical and creative thinkers, effective communicators, responsible citizens and leaders, and lifelong learners.

The John Cooper School seeks to attract qualified individuals of diverse backgrounds to its faculty, staff, and student body. The School does not discriminate against any individual in admissions, educational programs, personnel policies, general practices, or employment, on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, physical disability, or age.
