Highschool teachers are fantastic!!!! Very supportive and, although it is hard, it is very worthwhile.

The teachers are absolutely amazing in this program. They provide so much support and respond to any emails so quickly, I rarely need to send a follow up email. My favorite subject with ORVA is the history course, so amazing!

Although, getting the hang of how to "teach" my kids, (I have one in 2nd, and a kindergartner), balance my life between my two other little ones, and everything else in life, this has been great for my family. The school itself is A-mazing! The teachers are so supportive and are easily reachable through e-mail or phone. I have never seen such commitment, and I never figured it could be achieved through a virtual stand point. ORVA has great resources in all areas of life, not just school, there are support groups for every kind of family background and environment. And the curriculum seems to be great and the lessons provided allow me to really make sure that my child understands each one before just "moving on". The teachers call every month to see how were doing. This has been the best decision even if it has been the most difficult thing I have ever done. ORVA also has created a great IEP and team for my son who also needs speech, as well as other academic assistance. ORVA should be acknowledged for its dedication to its achievements through student success and also its commitment to pushing the limits on academics in a virtual environment.

My daughter has been with ORVA since her first day of Kindergarten and she not only loves her school and teachers, but she has excelled every day. The staff are amazing. The curriculum is better than our local schools and I am very happy with how hard she has come. She is now middle of her 2nd grade year and we will stay with ORVA as long as she is happy and excelling.

My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD last year during the school year. We worked with the brick and mortar school to try and come up with an education plan that worked for her. After many meetings that got Us absolutely nowhere we decided that we needed a change. Oregon Virtual Academy has been a life saver. My daughter has a ton of support from the staff and the curriculum is amazing. We get to work at the pace that works for her, so alot less tears and heartache. When we started she was a little behind in math, but is now caught up and doing great. I am sure she will be in ORVA until she graduates school. I also decided to enroll my son who is in 8th grade. He needed some structure and some discipline. He tests higher then the average 8th grader, but he wasn't doing the school work, so hs was failing and the school wasn't trying to help with the situation. After a year at ORVA I believe he understands what will be expected of him in high school and he is going in with better study habits.

We switched our daughter to ORVA from our local public school half way through her 2nd grade year and we couldn't be happier with our decision. She has been allowed to progress at a much faster pace than before. The support we get from her teachers and from the community/school is awesome. The supplies, which are sent completely free of charge, are phenomenal and way above that which brick and mortar schools provide. The online lessons and programs are great and allow for complete flexibility -- our daughter can do her school work anywhere we are. Overall it is the best school we have ever experienced and we couldn't be happier with our choice.

My kids have been enrolled in ORVA for 2 years and it has been an incredible experience for our whole family. The teachers are great and really care for the students. The school has a lot of resources to help parents as we guide students through the program. There is also an awesome support network for parents on-line. My kids have become more confident in their abilities and I have loved being apart of their daily learning.

I am a grandmother learning coach responsible (with help) for a 14 year old with ADHD. It doesn't mean he is not as smart as the next, but slower. If his goal is to climb a tree lots of students just go for it and get to the top. Mine goes for it, but stops at every branch to look around and absorb the scenery and probably tell you about it in detail! He gets to the top but who has gotten more out of the assignment? Homeschool lets us have the structured guidance and professional support but ability to flex with the student. Oregon K-12 has made it possible. Now is the process always smooth and perfect? Nope, we have computer glitches, and teacher glitches, and subject glitches but they are glitches you can work on to correct or fix. We have direct input and my student is the total focus!!

We love this program. We have had some difficulties but we found a schedule that works for us and truly enjoy what our son is learning.

This school is made a difference in my child's life. He finally enjoys doing the school work and really like the morning class sessions. When we started this school we knew we were going to get text books in the mail but we were shocked when two very large boxes showed up. We not only received text books but also art supplies, science supplies, reading books, and much more. They really did set up my house for a full classroom. I now don't have to worry that my son will miss out. I recommend this program all the time. We have a student who works at his own pace and in some areas that is super fast and in others its a bit slower. We have been able to set our pace with every subject and now he is thriving. I really enjoy the program because I am included in the teaching without having to come up with my own lesson plan.

I love that we have much more flexibility than a traditional b&m school offers. Staff is very helpful resolving any & all issues/questions. Materials are quality & easy to use.

We have been an ORVA family for 5 years and plan on at least 5 more. ORVA is public school at home. It fits our family's needs perfectly and my son wants to continue through graduation. It is not for everyone but it is certainly for us!

My two daughters have been attending Oregon Virtual Academy for 3 years. This has been the best thing I've ever done for my girls. They have gotten better grades and like school more. And love being able to talk and email there teachers when ever they needed. Just to give you a in site on how much Oregon Virtual Academy care about there students. My Daughter who is a senior did not pass her Math Oakes test by one point so she needed to retake it so she can graduate. They actually sent the principal to our location which is over 5 hours for him to retest her. She was the only one testing that day also. Thanks Oregon Virtual Academy for going beyond and above to make a better choice for my kids.

My daughter has flurished within ORVA over the past 3 years. She went from not knowing what she was being taught in a B&M school to being in the top 99% nationally. She is only a 3rd grader. She loves ORVA and does not want to go back to a regular public school.

We switched from a brick and mortar school in 2013. My younger son was extremely bored in school and the school wouldn't challenge him. He loves ORVA and is being challenged. My older son was struggling with a few things and is doing well with the one and one. The teachers are awesome and we love the Orventures.

I love ORVA. The teachers are great and supportive! The curriculum is very well put together. I like the fact that you can test ahead and get to a level that is challenging for your child but can also stay at spot that the child is struggling with until he understands it before you move on. I recommend this school to everyone I know that has children or grandchildren in school.

In less than one year, with ORVA and his grandmother's help, my son made amazing progress from "does not meet" to "meets" in writing and math. He's happier, we fight less and he's regaining his confidence! ORVA allows the flexibility in each subject that other online programs didn't and a great balance between online and offline work. Being a learning coach is a huge responsibility and the supports are there every step of the way. Learning becomes interesting for both the student and the coach!

This is a great alternative to a brick and mortar school! I love the interaction with my child's teacher. It is very challenging, but the opportunity to be involved in my child's education is priceless. The curriculum is very good for all different types of learners. It truly is the best of both worlds as this is a highly structured curriculum with grades, learning goals, interaction with peers and teachers, but as the learning coach, I have the opportunity to structure the day around our family life and instill our values alongside.

ORVA saved my son and we would have been lost without them! Five years ago my son was bullied to the point he threatened suicide at our local brick and mortar school. I pulled him out and quit my job to homeschool him full time. We had no idea where to begin. Everything from our enrollment to the tradition into the classroom was incredible, I felt more supported in my son's education than ever before! My son is now in 8th grade and is thriving educationally and socially, having meet his best friend through an ORventure (once a month outings for the kids). I'm so grateful to have this option and to see the good it has done for my son and many other children!

My children have been with ORVA for almost 5 years. There's so many things we like about ORVA as a family. My kids love that they have more social time and more time for playing sports and ballet without the stress of trying to figure out how to get homework done since they are able to see their class calendar and work ahead as needed. My kids have study groups with other kids in ORVA and I've seen their educations improve tremendously since we switched to ORVA. We love ORVA. We love the curriculum. It's perfect for us.

My 2nd grade daughter has been with ORVA since Kindergarten, and she loves it! We love the schedule flexibility, which allows us to do extracurricular activities like ballet, karate, 4-H, and swimming. The best part of the curriculum is history, science, art, music & foreign language classes, which aren't offered in many of our local schools due to large class sizes/budget restrictions.

We enrolled our son in 3rd grade to accommodate traveling out of country for work and to deal with his boredom at his old school. His grades and interest in learning skyrocketed, and he loved his experience with ORVA so much we will be continuing on not out of necessity, but by choice. ORVA provides flexibility for kids at all levels of learning. Our son reads 2 grade levels above his age level, and his math skills are very good. After his first year with ORVA, his OAKS scores were great. He likes that he is not restricted to the speed of the rest of the class to feel challenged, and has the freedom to study subjects more deeply if he chooses to. We are really pleased to have it as a free public school option.

We enrolled our son in Orva after being disappointed with our local school. This school is great! We have so much support from teachers and a great community of students and parents. Orva has exceeded my expectations and we will be enrolling our youngest son kindergarten next year.
