MAUMEE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The first day of school comes as families across the state are frustrated and nervous about what the new school year will mean in the face of a global pandemic. According to one survey, 2/3 of parents support keeping brick and mortar schools closed until there is no risk.
Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA), a tuition-free online public-school serving students in grades K-12 throughout the state will begin their school year Monday, August 24. Attending OHVA can provide a safe alternative, while OHVA’s career readiness programs can allow families to still focus on their child’s future.
OHVA has been a trusted education partner for Ohio families for over 18 years, offering a personalized approach to learning, delivering rich, engaging curriculum designed to assist students who seek alternative pathways to education.
And high school students who attend OHVA can participate in the Destinations Career Program where they will discover classes to help them with potential careers in fields like Business and IT. By taking these courses, students can potentially earn college credits, giving them an advantage over other students in their state and possibly saving them thousands of dollars in college tuition costs.
“With everything going on, many Ohio parents are just unsure what to do this coming school year,” said OHVA Head of School Dr. Kristin Stewart. “I can tell you that OHVA has been a place of strong, consistent education for Ohio students for a long time. Online school works, and we have the skills and experience to give your student a successful school experience.”
