Students who enroll in OHVA receive the award-winning academic program developed by K12 Inc., which includes engaging web-based lessons along with instructional materials – books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and resources – which are shipped directly to each student's home. OHVA provides courses in English/Language Arts, Math, Science, History, Music and Art for students in grades K-8, while the high school program offers students a catalog of more than 150 core, elective, AP and world language courses. OHVA students are active in extracurricular activities, including the school's National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society chapters, as well as a national network of 100+ clubs that cover a wide variety of interests like Lego, chess, Spanish, American Girls®, photography, guitar, debate and flamenco dance.
OHVA teachers provide instruction, guidance and support and regularly interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. They strive to collaborate with parents to develop an Individualized Learning Plan to aid student academic success and meet goals set by parents, students and teachers. Teachers also organize outings and other school activities. Additionally, Lead Teachers at each grade level supervise other instructors, while carrying a reduced class load – a collaboration structure that allows for encouragement and problem solving within the teacher network.
