School Official Point of View

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!

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.


Amount of homework:
SCHOOL LEADER
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.

Teacher effectiveness:
SCHOOL LEADER
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.
