(OPA) provides a rigorous academic curriculum within a student-centered environment, which enables students to be successful in school academic pursuits. Students will experience a new approach to instruction that focuses on the Five Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Compassion. These skills will prepare our "Champions" with the content knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their future.
 
We fulfill our mission by:
 
-Emphasizing high academic standards, respect, patriotism, and courtesy
-Providing a structured environment conducive to learning
-Expecting active parent participation and support of school policies and programs
-Implementing the Theory of Multiple Intelligences as part of instruction
-Offering on-going teacher and parent training
-Maintaining consistent communication between home, school, and community
-Engaging in community service-based (Service Learning) activities embedded throughout grade level standards instruction
-Ensuring all students are performing at grade level, based on State Standards

Everyone at OPA has been working extremely hard to get ready for the return to in-person instruction on October 21st.

This will include pick-up and drop off, health and safety, and other important information. Please be on the lookout for this envelope in the mail. If your student is participating in the hybrid cohort (on-campus instruction) and you do not receive this letter by Monday, October 19th, please reach out to your Chancellor or school office.
