applying to college or entering the workforce,” said Sheryl Tatum, head
of school of Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy. “We provide them with the
support they need to achieve a high level of success no matter their
plans after high school.”

At OVCA, advanced learners have the ability to progress faster in
subjects at which they excel, while students who need more time to grasp
a concept get that opportunity. The school’s robust gifted and talented
program challenges advanced learners, while the broad range of
profession-focused courses provides students with a competitive edge.

Earlier this summer, OVCA challenged enrolled families to prevent summer
‘brain drain’ by offering students free access to LearnBop,
a self-paced solution that simulates a one-on-one, personalized math
tutoring experience. The award-winning online program will continue to
be available free of charge throughout the fall and can be used
alongside the regular math curriculum to build math skills or prepare
for high-level exams.

OVCA is still accepting enrollments for this fall. To learn more about
