Welcome to Opportunity Academy (OA), a trauma-informed personalized learning school. At OA we strive to build healthy, positive relationships with our students, parents and staff while building a culture of respect for all and self-advocacy for our students. Our goals are to help students develop a foundation on which to build knowledge, develop skills of use for the future, and create a desire to learn while giving them more control over time, path, place, and pace of learning.
By providing personalized learning to students via Edgenuity, our digital resource, and giving support from highly qualified, professional educators, we strive to help our students set and reach academic and career goals. We endeavor to make learning the constant and time the variable with an understanding that not all students learn at the same pace or in the same way as others.
Our school is an optional program and students attend as a privilege. We work to establish a culture of Growth Mindset characterized by goal-setting, a staunch work ethic, perseverance and a positive attitude while rewarding effort and achievement. We are looking forward to partnering with our students and parents to have a great experience. We are excited about our new program and the opportunity it gives our students to succeed and attend college early.
Opportunity Academy believes that by sparking interests intellectually, emotionally, and socially, all students can travel their own unique path towards a successful future.
Here at Opportunity Academy we assess students regularly on how they are feeling about themselves and the world around them. This is a peek behind the curtain so that we might find a way to help your student perform best academically and socially. Below is the introduction to the assessment:
We would like to know what thoughts about life you’ve had during the past several weeks. Think about how you spend each day and night and then think about how your life has been most of this time.
The following are some questions which ask you to indicate how strongly you think about various aspects of your life and your life overall. Next to each statement, please choose the choice that most accurately indicates the extent to which you agree or disagree with it.
It is important to know what you REALLY think, so please answer the questions the way you really think, not how you think you should think. This is NOT a test! There are NO right answers. Your answers will NOT affect your grades, and only the researchers will see your answers.
Seperate from the Terrace-Metrics we will also have a survey on your students school attitude before they start and after they finish with us.
