Independent Study has never been more exciting!
The Possibilities are Virtually Endless!
Our VISION is to create a world-class education today to shape tomorrow’s selfless, global leaders.
Our MISSION is to provide a world-class education that challenges all students to achieve their maximum potential and prepares them to succeed in a global society.
Our PHILOSOPHY: Oxford Virtual Academy takes the distance out of distance learning by working in partnership with families to provide rigorous academic preparation that is teacher mentored, parent directed and customized to meet the needs of students from all academic backgrounds. OVA continues to provide improved student learning and maintain positive family relationships based on trust and a shared belief that the student always comes first.
A school without walls, the Oxford Virtual Academy is all about options and flexibility. Students learn in their own way, at any time, in any place, and at their own pace. The virtual school offers online courses 24/7, for a customized education built on individual strengths. Imagine a school where:
• Local, state, national and international students are welcome;
• Courses are available to students in grades Kindergarten through 12;
• There are opportunities for credit recovery, enrichment, or advancement;
• Classrooms are interactive;
• Seated community resource classes (CRC) are available;
• Unique partnerships offer attractive options for the homeschool community;
• There is regular communication with teachers, mentors, and counselors;
• Coming soon, students can access a help hotline for 24/7/365 support; and
• Courses are tuition-free!
One certainty in this hyper-connected global world is that virtual literacy is a requisite skill no matter where you choose to live and work. Today’s students will need to know their way around the virtual world to be able to compete for the best jobs or contracts. In a stark departure from the traditional classroom setting, the Oxford Virtual Academy offers its students true interactive environments of project-based learning and collaborative problem solving.
The Oxford Virtual Academy offers a wide variety of courses that appeal to students of all ages and with very diverse interests. What sets it apart from other virtual schools is that every student is matched with the course provider that best provides specialized instruction based on his or her individual needs. Classes are interactive as opposed to “clicker” environments.
The Academy’s logo depicts an abstract schoolbook morphed into a computer, which then becomes pixels breaking out of their boundaries and elevating into infinity. It captures the principles that are at the heart of the Oxford Virtual Academy and the vision of Oxford Community Schools.
Oxford Community Schools has more than 5,000 students in pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. There are nine schools that comprise the district, including five elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, one early learning center and one alternative high school. Oxford is also home to the Oxford International Residence Academy and the Oxford Academy of Engineering & Technology. In this latest venture, the Oxford Virtual Academy begins to transcend traditional learning to a new normal.
Every student can benefit from online learning. Contact us today to discover what’s right for you.

LASHELLE PIERRE OXFORD VIRTUAL ACADEMY STUDENT:
“In the classroom you’re distracted a lot because you have your friends there. It’s easier if you can work at your own pace. I like it for me because instead of taking six or seven classes in nine or ten months, I can be done with all of my classes in half the time.”
