GOALAcademy Online High School Serving Students Across Colorado.  Our curriculum is delivered through online coursework, as well, we have also integrated low student to academic coach ratios so we can create relationships for greater success.  The part of our school which sets us apart from most online schools is that we have local drop-in centers with local academic teams .  GOAL Academy Drop-In Centers are a concept that came from the vision of the school, where engaging online instruction and face-to-face interaction was an essential part of the success of our students. 

The centers are designed to be a resource to our students, families and staff.  It is natural to see all sorts of interactions happening in a drop-in center; tutoring, testing, socialization, community outreach, pizza parties, student club and organization meetings...the list goes on.  We want our students to know they always have a place to come to for any reason.  We have locations across Colorado.  They tend to be centrally located in areas of student concentration.  Any location across the state is available to a GOAL Academy Student.

We utilize experiential learning, concurrent enrollment college courses and career and technical education to acquire a greater experience while a student at our school.   We currently serve 2500 students statewide.  Our school works with various student populations;  At-risk, teen parents, traditionally homeschooled students, gifted and talented, students struggling with bullying or students whose life situations are preventing academic engagement.  Our wish for GOAL Academy students is to support them in earning the high school diploma they need as well as put them on a path post-graduation that will make them successful for a lifetime.
