Ohio Virtual Academy Students Head Back To School; Program Celebrates 11th Year Providing Expanded Learning Opportunities

Stocks in this article: LRN

MAUMEE, Ohio, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA), a tuition-free, accredited online public charter school for students in Ohio, began the 2012-2013 school year last week as the program marks its 11th year of operation in the state. OHVA uses the award-winning K¹² curriculum to offer students in grades K-12 an individualized learning approach and provide them with the tools they need to succeed—both in school and beyond.

"While traditional schools work well for some, we've found that families in Ohio have responded positively to the personal attention and flexible learning schedule we're able to provide with our program," said Dr. Kristin Stewart, Head of School at OHVA. "Parents and teachers know that not every child is able to learn at the same speed or in the same environment. OHVA has been successful over the past decade because we offer an individualized program that gives each student the learning experience that most suits his or her needs."

Due to a steady increase in high school enrollment, OHVA has added two new principal positions this year. There is now one principal solely dedicated to serving Grade 9, another exclusively committed to Grade 10 and a third tasked with overseeing Grades 11 and 12. These new additions are intended to help support students and families who may require extra attention during the year. While each principal focuses on specific grade levels, they are working as a team to provide the best possible support for OHVA's High School Program.

With online education, learning can happen at home, on the road or wherever an Internet connection can be found, and it presents a viable option to those who may be struggling with the pace of learning or who are subject to unpredictable schedules, like military families. While attendance, teacher interaction and daily lessons are conducted online, many lessons at OHVA use physical materials and offline tools as well. OHVA teachers are some of the most tech-savvy, creative educators in the state and provide instruction, guidance and support to students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions or over the phone.
