Supporting our 8th and 9th graders

According to our data, students need support moving from 8th to 9th grade to be successful. This is the most important time to support our students, so they graduate from Oregon Virtual Academy High School. Having a personal connection to a staff member, helps create success.

The student success program is a unique offering that sets ORVA apart. It’s one of the many ways ORVA helps students thrive in school and stay on track to graduate
