Meet Our Ohio Connections Academy School Leader
Marie Hanna has been with Ohio Connections Academy (OCA) since 2005. She started her career at OCA as an assistant principal and is now the executive director of the school. She is proud of the growth of the school—from a few hundred students to over 3,000. She is also proud of the school's academic achievement. OCA was an "Excellent" rated school in 2010 and earned "Effective" ratings in 2011 and in 2012—the only statewide eSchool to have achieved that level of performance.
Ms. Hanna says, "I love working here at OCA. None of our achievements would have been possible without our wonderful staff and supportive families. We provide the best virtual education in Ohio. We are constantly working to improve our instruction to our students. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to serve our families."
