Ransom Everglades joined Global Online Academy (GOA) for the 2015-16 academic year, providing students a virtual space to learn, create and collaborate with resources and learners around the world. Member schools and students are located across six continents, allowing GOA classes such as “Global Health,” “Genocide and Human Rights,” “Energy” and even “Linear Algebra” to spark conversations and collaborations RE students may never have in their classes on campus. GOA students also learn time management, develop organizational skills working with partners across the globe, and overcome barriers of culture and language.
GOA's mission is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The mission of Ransom Everglades School is to provide an educational environment in which the pursuit of honor, academic excellence and intellectual growth is complemented by concern for the physical, cultural and character development of each student. The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
