GOA students participate in a truly global classroom, learning alongside peers with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Courses are designed, developed and taught by teachers from member schools and meet the rigor and high quality for which these schools are well-known. Credit is awarded by Punahou for participating Punahou students.
GOA courses are equivalent to an honors or AP course in amount of work and time necessary to complete the course. The 2020 - 2021 courses offer elective credit at Punahou. Semester courses earn one-half credit and year courses earn one credit.
