"Keep in mind that GOAL’s online blended model of education provides alternatives for disconnected youth (65,000 strong in Colorado). These are teenagers and young adults who are not working, nor are they attending school. Undoubtedly, we provide an alternative for ANY student for whom the old “brick and mortar” model isn’t working, but we are not, in any way, out to “steal” students from the school districts. We are, however, in the business of “developing productive members of society” from young people who were not headed toward productivity," Gunnison (Gunny) Pagonotta, Communications Coordinator, Goal Academy High School

Dr. Constance Jones, C.E.O. and Mrs. Debbie Rose, President of the Board, along with 400 staff and over 4,000 projected students officially kicked off the school year August 1st and 2nd at their annual, statewide GOAL Forum with this year’s mantra: “100% : It starts with US”.

The Mission: “Developing productive members of society”

The Vision “Helping all students achieve their full potential in a caring, supportive, and personalized environment.

Five regions (Southern, Central, Colorado Springs, Denver, and Northern), 30 student drop-in centers, two technology centers, and the headquarters in Pueblo will be fully up and running under authorizing District 49 on the first day for students --- September 3, 2019. Orientations will occur during the month of August.

Signup is easy by calling 1-877-PRO-GOAL (877-776-425) or using the online enrollment form at: goalac.org

GOAL’s primary focus is regaining as many of the approximately 65,000 disconnected teenagers and young adults in the state of Colorado. “Disconnected” individuals are those between the ages of 16 and 24 who do not attend school, nor are they working.
