Global Learning

Experience the World with Gilman . . . at home and abroad.

Global Online Academy

Gilman School is part a consortium of more than 60 leading independent schools from around the world in the Global Online Academy (GOA), a nonprofit organization that provides online courses to diversify and deepen the student learning experience. Gilman is the only Baltimore school participating in this program.

The mission of GOA is to translate the intellectually rigorous programs and excellent teaching that are hallmarks of its member schools into online classes. Member schools include Episcopal Academy (Pa.), Lakeside School (Wash.), The Westminster Schools (Ga.), The Dalton School (N.Y.), King's Academy (Jordan) and Beijing No. 4 International School (China).

At Gilman, 45 GOA courses are open to rising juniors and seniors. Gilman faculty also teach GOA classes.

A typical GOA course will be comprised of students located across multiple time zones that will collaborate on projects, communicate through discussion boards and video recordings, and have constant access to multimedia course materials. Teachers hold regularly scheduled virtual office hours, ensuring 1:1 instruction.


Joining Global Online Academy is an exciting opportunity both for faculty and students at Gilman to experience new, modern ways of teaching and learning. We benefit from expanded course offerings and teaching networks, while promoting students' global awareness and understanding.
