What is the difference between ORVA and regular High School?

Question: “What is the difference between ORVA and regular High School?” -James

Answer:

Well, James, ORVA is a public school that meets online. A “regular” high school, which we refer to as “brick and mortar” meets in a building.  Both follow state standards and regulations set by the Oregon Department of Education. Oregon is one of many states that has a virtual academy through K-12. Brick and mortar schools are public schools, where one actually goes to a building and attends classes. They have set hours and classes, whereas ORVA is more flexible and done at home or anywhere else with an internet connection. The only thing that is set at ORVA are Class Connects Sessions, which students attend live. I do hope this answers your question.

Sincerely,

Bartholomew
