For-Credit Courses

For Credit Course Offerings for Upper School Students

For Summer 2021, Roland Park Country School has partnered with Global Online Academy (GOA) to offer small, engaging online courses for credit. We are thrilled about this opportunity for our Upper School students.

GOA's mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.

GOA Courses for Credit
Roland Park Country School has determined to allow RPCS students to add these classes to their transcript, following successful completion of the course. Students may also work with the RPCS registrar to include courses as pass/fail. If you attend a different high school, please work with your registrar and school heads to determine for credit eligibility.

About Global Online Academy
Small, engaging online courses
Each of our online summer high school classes is capped at 20 students, guided by an expert teacher from a GOA member school. Students come from many different schools and share a passion for the subject. They build relationships with teachers and classmates through frequent, mostly asynchronous discussions and collaboration. At GOA, online learning is not about video-watching and quiz-taking. Learning at GOA is about relevant, hands-on ideas and coursework. Students log in multiple times a week to join discussions, work together on projects, and design their own ways to show their learning.

Summer 2021 Course Offerings
GOA is offering some of its most popular semester classes in an intensive 7-week format. Most of these courses cover a semester’s worth of material and expect a 10-12 hour per week commitment from students. For Spanish 1, which is designed to replace a yearlong high school course, students should expect to dedicate 15-20 hours per week. The summer term runs from June 14 to July 30, 2021.

Once enrolled in the course, all communication, assignments, class schedule, and meeting details will be sent by the GOA instructor.
