Online Middle School in Ohio
The On-Ramp to Success for Ohio’s Middle School Students
The middle school years at our online school, Ohio Connections Academy (OCA), are an exciting time as students become increasingly independent with their studies and begin to take more responsibility for their learning. OCA’s middle school curriculum helps students see their own potential and the many possibilities that are open to them.
Online lesson directions are now written directly to students, as
Learning Coaches move into a more supportive role. Online middle school students are encouraged to take the lead in their studies and are held to high standards as they move toward their high school years.

Support for Ohio Online Middle School Students
Middle school students start to work directly with highly qualified
subject area teachers for their online courses, but they remain under the guidance of a counselor or an advisory teacher for overall support. They actively participate in teacher-led virtual instruction and review sessions via our LiveLesson®
tool, which provides not only more specific instructional assistance, but also the opportunity for students to communicate and work with their peers.
Online Middle School Course Electives and Activities
Students at our Ohio middle school vary their online education with exposure to many different subjects and activities in the middle school curriculum. Students in our Ohio online middle school program choose from a wide range of elective courses and become involved in the variety of
school clubs and activities. They can join clubs that enrich them in whole new ways, like competing in Mathematical Olympiads or writing for the school newspaper.
gifted online middle school students have access to high-school-level courses and begin to earn high school credit, subject to their counselor’s approval.
College Credit Plus Courses
Ohio's College Credit Plus program allows online middle school students in grades 7–8 to start earning high school and college credits by taking courses at a local college.
