Our mission is to provide a replicable, sustainable, equitable model for high quality standards based education while also supporting the acquisition and development of students' foreign language skills. We develop, promote and integrate effective research-based structures and practices that support student achievement in the classroom, especially focusing on those with limited English proficiency and low-performing students. We believe that in order to be an educated person in the 21st century our students need to have the ability to read, write, speak and calculate with precision as well as participate responsibly in their community. We optimize resources so that all students can become successful active participants and role models in our global, multicultural society.
Global Outreach Charter Academy (GOCA) is a school where students from many countries and various cultural backgrounds can experience a safe, student-centered environment, with immersion in a bilingual program that prepares participants for advanced studies at the high school and college levels. GOCA is a place where parents and teachers collaborate to ensure that all students meet high expectations in their personal and academic growth. GOCA's primary bilingual immersion focus is English-Russian, but is expanding to include English-Chinese and English-Spanish in 2011.
