Dreaming of giving your child the world… by teaching about other people and places, and imparting the most precious gift of a global view? This dream becomes reality at Global Outreach Charter Academy which promotes academic excellence, utilizing modern foreign language programs, within a service-learning environment and a deep commitment to the development of responsible citizens who can thrive in our global community.
Language is one of the strongest components of culture, and is therefore a window into the thoughts, beliefs and mindsets of others. Apart from mastering foreign languages, students of Global Outreach Charter Academy gain awareness of—and show more positive attitudes towards—other people and cultures. Global Outreach Charter Academy embraces diversity and supports students and families from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, nationalities and socio-economic levels.
Global Outreach Charter Academy is a one-of-a-kind charter school in Duval Public School system offering K-8 education with a number of exceptional programs featuring:
* Unique K-8 Foreign Language Program
* Early High School Program
* Foreign Exchange Student Program
* Athletic and Physical Activities
* Extended Day Programs
Researches prove that knowledge of foreign languages opens doors to a world of endless opportunities such as higher-paying careers in a global workforce. Literacy in foreign languages also expands cultural awareness and understanding, and creates empathetic and knowledgeable global citizens.
On March 18, 2012 GOCA reached an important milestone in its history. The accreditation team of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) visited our School.
