NEIA Students Excel in Global Online Academy Classes

Global Online Academy (GOA) offers Innovators supplementary, online classes that give them the freedom and support they need to explore their passions.

As part of our GOA programming, we had two students who have gone above and beyond and have been commended for their efforts. Ileana (11th grade) and Wil (10th grade) were nominated by their GOA teachers to have their capstone projects in the Catalyst Exhibition Showcase (think a virtual science fair that classes from across the country can attend).

Global Health teacher Faye Wells had this to say about Ilena’s work: “Your presentation was an excellent example of applying course content! You were thorough, specific, and thoughtful. Well done!”

Introduction to Psychology teacher Guadalupe (Lupe) Fisch had this to say about your work: “Wil, you took the important topic of sleep and the issue of many teens not getting enough of it and utilized the prime culprit, the phone, to tackle the issue… You grounded your app development on sound psychological principles, and you conducted a robust amount of research. You can be very proud of your work.”

Last semester, NEIA had 31 students taking 21 different GOA courses. Our average final grade was a phenomenal 93%. Kaitlin M., Director of the Library & Learning Commons, has seen “a really, really good” response from students. They’re enjoying their classes and feel challenged by the fast-paced classes. “A lot of them are taking things they’re interested in long-term, but the range of classes they can take runs the gambit. There’s a lot of options for them to choose from.”

On Tuesday, 9th-grade Visual Arts embarked on a real-world exploration. The students visited the New England Aquarium, immersing themselves in the vibrant marine environment where they were inspired and tasked to translate their experiences onto paper.
