GOA courses are one-semester or year-long online courses. All GOA courses are elective credits, except for Multivariable Calculus.

Students who choose to enroll in these courses should note that collaboration with peers and teachers is an essential component of most GOA courses, and students will be expected to manage collaboration and communication across varied time zones. Students who are eligible and interested in completing these specialized learning options may choose to enroll in a one-semester or year-long online course. Once students register, they must commit to completing the course. The GOA course must be a course not already offered at ASD. 

Unlike traditional ASD courses, GOA courses cannot be changed during the add/drop period at the beginning of a semester. The GOA Site Director will contact students to assist them through the process of signing up for a specific course. The GOA course replaces one of the eight courses they would ordinarily register for in an academic school year; this course cannot be taken in addition to the maximum course load.

Students are encouraged to select a course that allows them to follow their passions or interests and goes beyond the options available on-site at ASD.

Credits earned through GOA could be used to fulfill ASD graduation credit requirements, and GOA classes will appear on the student’s transcript and become a part of the student’s official academic record. To earn credit, the course must be completed prior to the final day of the semester; otherwise, the course will be listed as an F. GOA courses will be listed on the ASD transcript along with the final grade and credit earned. The final grade will be incorporated into the cumulative GPA.
