AISB is pleased to be among leading independent schools from around the world in offering online courses as a member of the Global Online Academy. This not-for-profit organization offers top-quality online courses that go beyond the confines of the traditional school curriculum.

The mission of GOA is to provide a positive, interactive, and academically-rigorous environment for students to learn. GOA offers online courses that connect students to topics they care about and offer a network that connects those students to peers as passionate as they are.

There are more than 85 high-performing independent schools in the consortium, representing more than 15 countries and more than 25 states. All GOA courses are taught by teachers who are currently teaching at a GOA member school.
AISB is proud to among the first International Schools in Europe and the first in Hungary to have forged this partnership!
GOA course workload and course intensity are equivalent to courses taken on our campus. Unlike many online courses, students are not passive receptors of pre-recorded lectures from their teachers. Instead, students collaborate on challenging and interesting projects with students from around the world. They are also expected to manage their workload and time effectively to support the asynchronous nature of the courses.
GOA maintains excellence through rigorous teacher training, building on the best practices and values of leading independent schools - and by ensuring classrooms stay at a small size that fosters strong teacher-student relationships and student-to-student collaboration and interaction. AISB faculty members can also become a part of the esteemed group of GOA Instructors.
With Global Online Academy, teachers and students can share their voice on a global stage, improving learning and enabling the pursuit of individual passions.
