For Educators

How your organization can partner with UMGA

All around the world, excellent schools like your own pride themselves in preparing students for success in their future intellectual pursuits. The finest schools are consistently finding innovative ways to enhance their students’ educational experiences. The University of Miami Global Academy would like to help outstanding schools like yours to further enhance their current curricular offerings.

Curricular Solutions for Schools

Providing a broad range of course offerings can be challenging and cost prohibitive. Staffing, class size and scheduling issues are just a few reasons some schools cannot expand their course catalog. Affiliating with the University of Miami’s Global Academy enables your school to offer a diverse and custom tailored curricular listing to meet your student’s needs. With our variety of instructional delivery models, schools can select the type of implementation that best fits. You can trust UMGA’s high quality affiliate program to provide administrative and technical support as well as curricular training for instructional staff, making implementation of an excellent virtual program simple.
