Meet our Principal


Heath Foster
GLA Principal

Hello and welcome GLA students, families, and staff to our 2023-2024 school year!

I could not be more excited at the opportunity that I've been afforded to work alongside such a great group of students and staff here at Elkin's Global E-Learning Academy.

Our GLA staff is committed to offering its learners quality instruction and personalized learning experiences.  Students in grades 6-8 will have live daily instruction designed to engage them with their peers, motivate them to learn, and develop higher-order thinking skills.  Our high school students (9-12) will participate in a wide array of courses offered through the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) as they work towards obtaining their high school diploma.  Students will utilize real-time and asynchronous collaborative tools, audio/video, blogs, and cutting-edge assessment tools designed to prepare them for college/careers.

Never hesitate to reach out to us here at GLA with any questions, concerns, and/or suggestions as we strive to always provide our students with the best possible learning experiences.
