The OVS Story

 

The Ontario Virtual School (OVS) Story

As Principal of Ontario Virtual School (OVS), I cannot tell you how proud I am to work with a team of experienced teachers who are all committed to providing a thriving educational environment that supports all learners, maintains high expectations for all, and strives to develop caring, compassionate global citizens.

OVS has been operating for several years now and our vision remains the same:

“To empower all learners, through the use of technology so that they can experience academic success”

Ontario Virtual School (OVS) was inspired by the founding principle that every student can be successful and reach their academic potential when they are engaged and active in their learning. OVS recognized that the traditional educational system was no longer able to meet the diverse needs of today’s learner.  Driven by the obvious need for an alternative learning system, the school created a model that allows students to begin their courses of study at any time and maintain complete control of their learning pace.   

The inspiration behind launching OVS originates from recognizing that there was a need for an online school that could better meet the needs of students globally. For example, students who cannot attend classes on a regular basis due to personal/family reasons, health/emotional reasons, athletic commitments or full-time jobs can still reap the benefits of a learning experience. Ontario Virtual School also assists students with upgrading their marks in challenging courses in order to improve their understanding and increase their chances of gaining acceptance into competitive post-secondary programs.

Although the idea of online learning was not unique, Ontario Virtual School constructed a dynamic and interactive multi-media platform which was far more engaging than simply just reading text on a screen.  In addition, OVS believed that a varied assessment and evaluation strategy best allows teachers to gauge how well students are understanding the course content. This meant moving away from random computer-generated multiple-choice tests and exams to evaluations that are teacher-driven and tailored to a student’s strength.

Quality lessons, varied teacher-led assessment and outstanding customer service, form the building blocks of Ontario Virtual School, and it is these same pillars has led to its tremendous success. Pioneering the school in 2010 with only three course offerings and a half dozen students, OVS stands proudly today boasting over 60 courses and a staff of 30 to service the 3000+ students from all over the world.

Knowing that we are able to serve our global community in supporting their academic goals; whether it is to go to a post-secondary institution, go into a trade or apprenticeship, join the workforce or simply graduate from high school, is a very rewarding feeling.
