The University of Miami Global Academy (UMGA) offers an online middle and high school college preparatory program designed with students and their families in mind. UMGA provides students with superior knowledge of subject matter, informed awareness of the world around them, and the courage to follow their dreams.

Fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement, the highest quality standards were used in developing an online classroom which incorporates the elements parents expect from a private preparatory school.

UMGA helps students sharpen their intellect to better compete or perform, whether they’re preparing for a concert performance, training for an athletic competition, or auditioning for a role on Broadway. Our online learning environment encourages exceptional critical thinking skills, develops curious minds, fosters ambition and leadership potential, and builds character focused on service to community and others. UMGA is ideal for:

  • Students who require the flexibility to learn as they pursue professional careers, including athletes and entertainers/performers;
  • Advanced or academically gifted students whose learning outpaces traditional schools;
  • Students struggling academically or socially;
  • Students with health challenges or special needs; and
  • Students whose families travel, including expatriates and military families.
