School under new leadership! Focus on student success through parent, & community partnerships. Experiential learning is a key component. Each child is met where they are, and curriculum is designed to build on what they already know. ABEKA curriculum is used, which our teaching staff is very familiar with having years of experience using it. Step Up For Students and McKay scholarships are accepted for qualified students. These scholarships require the highest standards from schools - Orange County Academy included!! We had a successful audit in fall 2015 by the Florida Department of Education. I sincerely invite any one from the community to visit our school!

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
All the teachers and staff are such talented educators! Together they make a winning team. Along with awesome volunteers, students are very fortunate to have this educational opportunity. Administration goes above and beyond to create wonderful learning experience for the students.
All the teachers are highly trained, experienced, and dedicated to each students success. Teachers carefully plan together at weekly meetings to insure the quality of education. The Administration and staff are superb.
There are high expectations for respect and appropriate behavior toward peers and adults. Bullying is not tolerated. If a conflict arises it is dealt with immediately. Parents are notified , and together a plan is made for student success.
I was aware of this school in years past, but I have been aware of great things happening there in the last year. The new Director, and staff members have brought about very positive changes to help students grow and develop academically, socially, and spiritually.
Homework is required. Homework reinforces the skills that are newly taught. Reading is the gateway into learning new subject matter. Students at Orange County Academy not only use homework to reinforce new skills, but also to prepare them for furthering their education.
Our teachers are effective because they have a heart for this school, a passion for education, and a strong desire for our students to succeed. All of our teachers have degrees in Education, along with many years of teaching experience to back that up. We hold weekly staff meetings to discuss any topic, concern, or planning that needs to be attended too. We work as a team, and support each other with respect and caring.
