Letter from the Head of School

Dear Parent,

The Oregon Virtual Academy (ORVA) is an innovative public charter school that makes it easy for you to be an active participant in your student’s education. ORVA families receive a complete curriculum, lesson planning programs, books and instructional materials, and the guidance of a state-licensed teacher. In short, everything you need for an excellent education.

The Oregon Virtual Academy uses the outstanding curriculum from K12 featuring traditional subjects for kindergarten through twelfth grade. Using this innovative learning program, ORVA provides an education that meets or exceeds state standards, and students demonstrate their knowledge and skills through state standardized tests.

While ORVA has requirements for advancement, the K12 learning program allows K–8 students to work at the pace that is right for them, allowing for greater flexibility than is typically possible in traditional schools. Assessments are administered to ensure that each child will be matched to his or her level of proficiency. The high school program is paced and requires class attendance. The high school program is accredited by NWAC, a division of AdvancEd.

We at ORVA are proud of our school, and we believe that it's a great choice for families who are interested in being actively involved in their children's education. We hope to welcome you soon to the Oregon Virtual Academy.

Best regards,

Dr. Debbie Chrisop
Interim Head of School
