Indian Creek School is part of a consortium of leading independent schools around the world in the Global Online Academy (GOA). As one of only three member schools in Maryland, ICS is able to offer students in Grades 9 -12 full access to ICS academic credit for GOA's online education course catalog, and a global community of students and learners.
Through our partnership, Indian Creek students can take a variety of courses on high-interest topics with their peers from around the world. The courses are fully asynchronous, and students spend 5-7 hours each week working through the course material. Most students choose to take a GOA course in place of a standard ICS course and to spend their free block in the Vos Academic Resource Center on their GOA coursework. Select students may take a GOA course as a seventh academic course or in the summer to advance their studies. To view course offerings, visit the GOA website
and search by course or department.
GOA classes appear on the ICS transcript and add to the competitiveness of our students’ college applications.
Additional Fees: The enrollment cost for GOA is $600 per semester. ICS covers the enrollment cost of one GOA semester course per school year if the course is one of the student’s five to six courses. ICS does not cover any enrollment costs for summer courses. For yearlong courses, Indian Creek covers one semester of the course, and the family is responsible for the second semester enrollment cost of $600. For a second course or a seventh course, families are responsible for the enrollment cost of $600.
