Thank you for your interest in the Goshen Learning Academy! 

The Goshen Learning Academy offers preschool, before/after school care, and summer camp programs for students in the Goshen Local School District.

Who better to care for your child after school than the school that educates them?

The Goshen Local School District’s Learning Academy provides an academic-based summer camp and extended day program for before and after school designed to enrich and increase student performance in the classroom. The framework utilizes cross-curricular thematic units with the use of technology to provide in-depth learning experiences for students.
