Who is this intended for?

Students in grades 9–12 who reside within the state of Ohio are eligible to attend OHVA for high school. It is OHVA’s expectation that most of our students who regularly attend school and achieve academic success will be promoted to the next grade level. The high standards and rigor of the K12 curriculum are more challenging than most traditional curriculum programs. Students are expected to make sufficient progress in mastering a year's worth of curricular content and objectives in a year's time, according to the Ohio State Standards.

A student moves from one grade level to another at the conclusion of each school year based on the year they enter high school. This does not guarantee that a student will graduate in four years. Students must earn the correct number of credits in the state-required areas in order to graduate.
