Our mission is to work together with the home, business, and community to develop responsible and productive lifelong learners.
Education is a lifelong process in which all students can learn.
Education will meet the needs of a changing society.
Education will provide opportunities for students to learn effective written and oral communication skills, practice critical thinking and problem solving skills and express ideas creatively.
Education will also address physical, cultural, social and emotional needs of students.
Students will be expected to accept responsibility to be actively involved in learning.
Students are the focus of an educational process that is valued, shared, and supported by the home, school, business, and community.
All individuals will be treated with dignity, respect, and equality.
Parents and guardians will be expected to be actively involved in their children's education.
We invite you to attend one of our three Town Hall style meetings to learn more about Oconee Virtual Academy. We will share details about how it works, what grade levels are offered; current students, families and staff will share their experience; and you will have a chance to ask questions. Please join us for whichever meeting fits in your schedule best.
