GOCA values the exchange of ideas in a positive and respectful environment. Our program is designed around four pillars:
- Student academic success, using individualized instruction based on the Common Core and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
- Global awareness and foreign language literacy through real-world applications that develops cognitive skills, positive discipline and collaborative learning.
- A highly qualified teaching staff who exemplifies compassion, dedication, and a commitment to shaping the lives of students and creating lifelong learners.
- Empowering parents and the community to be full partners in the academic success of all students.
GOCA reached an important milestone in it's history on March 18, 2012, the accreditation team of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) visited our school. All members of the faculty, administration, and staff worked on committees for more than a year to prepare the evidence needed to demonstrate that GOCA‘s leadership, curriculum, instructional practices, resources, and facilities are ready to receive the distinction of SACS accreditation.
During the visit, the External Review Team visited classrooms and interviewed students, teachers, administrators, staff members, parents, and the Governing Board to learn about GOCA. The visiting team presented its recommendations to Mr. Soroka, Mrs. Anderson, and the faculty on March 20th.
