Has the desire to homeschool your child been on your mind, but you just don’t think you can do it?


While the definition of “homeschooling” in Ohio is technically different than what “online public school” is designed to be,  the bottom line is your child is home for school, either way. If  that’s what you want for your child then Ohio Virtual Academy might be for you.


Your child can thrive…at home!



The Ohio Virtual Academy offers a tuition-FREE online public school education using the high quality K12 curriculum to help students in grades K-12 reach their true, personal potential. Learn more about our fully accredited public school option at

Parent Testimonials:

“We chose OHVA because we wanted something better for our children. I knew another family who had enrolled one of their daughters and loved it. When I saw a sample of the curriculum, I was sure we’d made the right choice. I love the blend of flexibility along with accountability.”

S. Armstrong, parent of OHVA students in grades 2 & 6


“Before enrolling in [the Ohio Virtual Academy], I home-schooled my daughter, and I was always wondering how we were doing … Before, we would muddle through and hope we were covering everything that she needed for each grade. Now we know that she is getting a quality education with a proven curriculum. When I home-schooled, I wasn’t sure if my daughter would have a diploma when she finished 12th grade; now I know she will. Everyone at K¹² and the school district has been just great, answering all my questions in a very prompt manner.”

Anonymous, parent of an OHVA student in grade 4
