Important Announcements

Now enrolling for the 2018–2019 school year!

Students must reside in the state of Ohio to be eligible for enrollment. Parents must also review and agree to the Parent Compact during the enrollment/registration process. To be accepted for enrollment in Ohio Virtual Academy, a student must be able to complete ALL Ohio graduation requirements by their 22nd birthday.

To begin the enrollment process, students must have participated in state authorized spring assessments* within the past two years.

Applications are currently being approved in the order in which they complete the enrollment steps outlined below, until we reach our enrollment cap. If we reach our enrollment cap, applicants will be notified and will be placed on our wait list in the order in which they complete the steps. If necessary, seat offers will be extended throughout the school year as space becomes available.
