2023/2024 Course Offerings
Global Online Academy
Global Online Academy (GOA) is an international consortium of leading independent schools that offers rigorous online courses and unites behind a common mission: to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society. GOA imagines a future where all students acquire and practice modern learning skills to be global citizens.
By becoming a member school, International School Bangkok has both expanded the elective course offerings available and provided our students the unique opportunity to connect with students from across the country and around the world. We also join a network of leading independent schools that is proactively defining this niche, creating new learning environments, developing a global community, and leveraging technology and modern learning skills to help students connect, share and learn.
If you are interested in taking one of the enrichment courses in either Semester 1 or Semester 2 for the Academic Year 2023/2024, make sure to look over the program catalog for that course and indicate your preference when you register your course choices.
“I have greatly enjoyed my GOA course this semester! I think this class was really helpful, especially going into the future and having to apply all of the skills I learned. I enjoyed how we got to connect with students all around the world and meet all of these people we wouldn’t have met otherwise. I didn’t know anything about money or how to manage it before I took this class but I feel now that I am prepared for the coming years when I go to college. I think the biggest takeaway was time management as I wasn’t going to a class in person I had to remind myself to check my Canvas page every so often. This helped me in my other classes as well because I know now how to plan out projects and assignments.”
