常见问题解答

11个常见问题列表.

  • 谁可以申请参加GOA课程?

    Any student entering grades 9-12 is eligible to apply.
  • 哪些GOA课程可供St. 卢克的学生?

    请参阅 GOA课程目录 查阅所有GOA课程的列表. 有些课程有先决条件.
  • GOA students and teachers are around the globe. What is the calendar year used and how do we communicate across time zones?

    GOA offers semester, year-long, and summer courses. 
    • Semester I runs from August to December.
    • Semester II runs from January to April.
    • Summer Term I courses are held in June and July.
    • Summer Term II courses are held in July and August.

    Note that Summer Term tuition is not covered by St. 卢克的. Exact dates and a calendar for the year are available in the GOA课程目录.
  • How much time will I need to spend per week on a GOA course during the school year?

    在典型的GOA课程中, students can expect to dedicate five to seven hours per week to their coursework. This cannot all be done in one sitting on a weekend. Students will need to regularly log into their GOA courses and complete the necessary work. Each class will share a calendar with students to indicate course expectations and assignments. Note that each GOA semester duration is a bit shorter than the St. 卢克的学期.

    这些课程主要是异步的. “Asynchronous'' means that the coursework will be done on your own, paced according to your schedule during the week. There will be occasional synchronous meetings (e.g., a Zoom meeting) with the teacher or a classmate to work on projects; those synchronous experiences would be scheduled at a time that works for all involved.
  • How much does it cost to enroll in a GOA course?

    GOA tuition fees for semester and year-long courses are covered by St. 卢克的. As a part of the GOA course enrollment agreement, students must commit to completing the entire term of the course. If a student drops a GOA course after the add/drop period (4 days into the GOA semester), a $500 tuition fee will be billed to the student’s account.

    St. 卢克的 does not cover tuition fees for Summer Terms. Families will make payment to GOA directly.
