Virtual learning pioneer Julie Young today announced the official launch of Global Personalized Academics (GPA) where she has been named chief executive officer. The new company provides virtual and classroom learning to help students across the globe transform the way they learn. Global Personalized Academics has been formed from Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SIBE) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Blended Schools Network (BSN). The company is in the process of completing the steps required for the name change to GPA.  

GPA offers international students the opportunity to earn a dual diploma from their native country in addition to one from a U.S. accredited high school through virtual learning. Initially, this program will be available in Asia and will expand to Latin America. The company is developing plans for a unique exchange program where students and teachers can spend time learning and teaching in the U.S. and the international countries where its students live. The design of the program emphasizes a personalized student-centered education curriculum in language arts, college prep and Advanced Placement courses along with leadership and entrepreneurial learning experiences. In addition to helping students gain the latest skills and knowledge, GPA will provide college counseling, career exploration and English as a Second Language (ESL studies).

“Today’s students are tomorrow’s citizens,” said Young. “They deserve education that prepares them for our ever-changing world. Our global learning ecosystem provides virtual and classroom-based quality education so no student will be left behind, regardless of where they are in the world. GPA brings together a leadership team of the best and brightest in the online education industry. With the latest technology and teaching practices, we will deliver learning experiences designed to keep students at the center, where they can thrive and reach their full potential.”

With over 30 years of experience in education, most recently in digital online learning, Young joins GPA from the Florida Virtual School where she was the founding president and chief executive officer.
