We’ve Added More Choices To School Choice

To us, it’s all about choices. Today’s student has long needed these choices to better align with their varied learning styles to maximize success. Not all students respond to the same delivery system when it comes to a primary education curriculum.

That’s where we come in—providing a blending of time-tested classical curriculum and delivered in modern, efficient, and exciting ways. From traditional bricks and mortar to completely virtual settings, Optima Schools has something to fit the varied needs and learning styles of today’s students and their families. We define ourselves as an ‘Education Experience Company’ because matching the right experience with the right student is where measurable, positive changes in student success begin.

We know one style of learning does not fit all, so we’re making sure all learning styles can find something that fits them.

In-person Learning

Optima Academies are traditional, brick-and-mortar public charter schools delivering a scholarly environment, a classical education model, and a time-tested liberal arts and sciences curriculum for grades K to 12. They are tuition-free and privately managed under contract with their local school districts and are open to all children regardless of income or zip code.

Each academy’s faculty delivers a content-rich rigorous curriculum using traditional classroom instruction and teaching methods. Uniforms are worn in a scholarly environment, ensuring that training students’ hearts and minds remain the focus of each school day.
