Julie Young was the founding president and CEO of Florida Virtual School and is now the founding CEO of Global Personalized Academics (GPA). GPA offers international students the opportunity to virtually earn a dual diploma from their native country in addition to one from a U.S. accredited high school. 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).
