OSEC is great! I have two kids in OSEC and we love the choices available. Both attend OHS, so they take seated classes, online classes, and Rochester College classes taught at OHS. Since they've both had online classes each semester, they also enjoy the college-style atmosphere in the OSEC lab at the high school, where they've developed nice friendships with students in the same program.

Both are also involved in OHS sports and clubs (Soccer and HOSA - Health Occupation Students of America). Mr. Suckley and Mrs. Merritt are always helpful when it comes to fitting everything into their schedules, including AP and IB classes, Bio-Med classes, as well as Band, Photography, Graphic Arts, and Independent Study. They're looking forward to taking classes at the Rochester College campus in the near future!

Welcome potential OVA families! Both of our children are currently taking full-time classes through OVA. Our oldest son has been with OVA for four years and has grown both intellectually and socially. He started OVA in the 5th grade and has benefited from the homeschooling aspect as well as the small group atmosphere at the OVA lab. The mentor/content teachers, tutors and support staff are phenomenal. Our youngest son started OVA this year. Although he did quite well in the seated classrooms, he has improved his grades and confidence level through OVA. My husband and I, as well as both of our children, love the 1:1 attention they receive. Our children love that they can work at their own pace and each of them feel as though they learn and understand the information more thoroughly through the on-line programs.

Although we were somewhat hesitant prior to starting OVA for a couple of reasons – we could not be happier with what this program offers. OVA has numerous partnership programs which our children can participate in. These partnership classes offer opportunities for socialization and a multitude of elective courses to broaden their learning experiences.
