Okaloosa Academy Charter School focuses on providing opportunities for students in grades 4-12 to achieve greatness even under imperfect circumstances. We focus on providing a safe and caring environment where every child is valued and respected. Taking the time to help students to realize their potential is invaluable to helping them become successful.
Opportunities available to our students begin with a strong academic core, which is provided by our in-field and highly qualified faculty. Credit recovery is essential to our students who have fallen behind academically. We are excited to begin using Edgenuity, a computer-based credit recovery program, as one of our methods of achieving this need. Edgenuity is also used by Okaloosa County School District, which makes transitioning students between schools easier for all involved.
Some of the most exciting opportunities available include electives in Art, Music, Leadership and Mentoring Programs. Students in the art department have won many awards, including The National Duck Stamp award honorable mention. The leadership program has been instrumental in helping our students learn to give back to their community; they worked a local food bank as well as helping with Children in Crisis and the Ronald McDonald House. Mentoring our younger students, after a screening process, is a wonderful opportunity for our 11th and 12th grade students. The mentoring program gives older students a sense of purpose and accomplishment and the younger students someone to look up to.
We look forward to working with your child and expect great things as we embark on building a world class alternative school – one student at a time!
