Welcome to OHVA! We're glad you're here!
One of your first steps towards success in OHVA will be to participate in required online orientations. Each specific segment is designed to address information you need, and will help you succeed. These are offered through your student's Class Connect online:
- K-8 Orientation for Learning Coaches: Sign in from your student's account.
- K-8 Classroom Welcome Orientations: Welcome Sessions hosted by your child's teacher, with the specific content for your child's grade level. Ask your teacher for a recording from the beginning of the school year.
Orientation Schedule for Newly Enrolled Families*:
Check your student's Class Connect Schedule for orientation dates and times. Typically K-8 orientations are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays.
New Family Check-Ins are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays to stop in, get questions answered and learn tips and tricks to help you succeed.
It is important that you participate in all of the sessions above. Your child's success is our goal! We purposely have broken down the information for you into these meaningful sections so that you will gain the most insight, learn what you need, and have a terrific year!

Attend the Learning Coach University
You will hear from your school representative once the school year starts. But by going through the steps outlined above, you will have already completed many of the tools needed to get your school year started.
OHVA facilitates and provides peer-mentoring, academic support, and discussions to students and their families. Many of our parents have established wonderful relationships and learned valuable tips and tricks from other parents through the Learning Coach University.
A wide range of extracurricular clubs and programs at the national and local level provide numerous socialization opportunities to students. Many of our students enjoy participating in local and national clubs. We offer a wide variety of options throughout the summer and school year.
K12 Curriculum—What to Expect?
The award-winning K12 curriculum brings lessons to life with a rich mixture of online and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original CDs and videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. In addition, lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson he or she is studying.
Your young learner will require your time and guidance to help him or her with completing schoolwork. This is a precious time for you and your child to engage in learning and exploring together-discovering the wonders of reading, math, history and science. In these early years of learning, your student is establishing important foundations for future academic and personal growth.
In elementary school you will work closely with your student's teacher to complete the daily lesson plan and monitor your student's progress and attendance. Your teacher is there to help you and your student, so please feel free to reach out whenever you have questions. This partnership with your student's teacher will ensure your child's ongoing success.
OHVA's K- 8 program is divided into 3 grade bands, each with unique needs, requirements, and teacher support offerings.
Early Elementary: Kindergarten - 2nd
Elementary: 3rd - 5th
Middle School: 6th - 8th
