We are privileged to have you consider Global Outreach Charter Academy as the potential educational solution for your child. This year, our school is celebrating its 10th anniversary, which is marked with impressive accomplishments and remarkable experiences that we have been able to create for our students. Our administration team is working hard to truly deliver on our promise and prepare students for global opportunities in leadership positions. To that end, GOCA team has created a plethora of unique programs, such as world travel, foreign exchange, global visitors program, and more.
As part of our mission, GOCA students have a unique opportunity to study Russian language, which has been designated as one of the most critically important languages for the U.S. national security (American Councils for International Education, 2016). As a result, the College Board added Russian to the advanced placement (AP) exam offerings, which opens an array of promising professional opportunities to our graduates. Students may choose to earn a highly prestigious Seal of Biliteracy designation during their high school years (to open in August 2020).
In addition to rich and exciting academic and cultural programs, security and wellbeing remain our outmost priorities. All GOCA campuses are fully equipped with top-notch security technology. We ensure that each staff member is professionally trained on all safety procedures and preventative measures.
Wellbeing of our students is manifested through physical, mental, and social positive environment. After-school enrichment programs are offered to qualified families. As part of our 21st CCLC program, students not only reinforce their academic skills in the most fun and exciting ways, but all participants have a unique opportunity to try themselves as engineers, fashion designers, journalists, and chefs. We hire passionate and highly professional Zumba instructors, water safety instructors, Jacksonville artists, and other professionals to share their passions and explore unique talents of our students!
The unique programs of Global Outreach Charter Academy are so numerous, that it would be impossible to fit them all in one page. Instead, we would love to meet you in person and provide you with a personal tour. You can schedule a personal tour by clicking Schedule a Tour button.
We look forward to have your family join our loving and supportive GOCA Community!
In March 2018, GOCA has been granted its re-accreditation status by the AdvancED Accreditation Review Committee. All members of the faculty, administration, and staff worked hard to prepare the evidence needed to demonstrate that GOCA‘s strong leadership, excelling curriculum, advanced instructions and practices, diversity of resources and facilities qualify to receive the distinction of AdvancED/SACS accreditation.
