Oklahoma Calvert Academy Mission Statement
The Oklahoma Calvert Academy is a virtual public charter school dedicated to inspiring students in grades K-8 to realize their full potential in a 21st Century learning environment utilizing a proven curriculum, expert instructional support, and instructional systems designed to encourage academic excellence. Leveraging the partnership between student, professional teacher, parents, peers and other members of the academic community, the Oklahoma Calvert Academy creates a learning environment that empowers students who participate in distance education programs to achieve success.
Since 1906, the non-profit Calvert organization has helped children to realize their academic potential despite the constraints of income and geography. The foundation of the Oklahoma Calvert Academy program is the high-quality, research-based, and standards aligned Calvert curriculum, which has been producing results for over a century.
Each student will benefit from the implementation of the Calvert curriculum driven by a professional learning community composed of a supervising Oklahoma Academy certified teacher, a Calvert online mentoring teacher, Calvert Education Counselors, and enriched by the daily support and encouragement of their Learning Guide.
The Oklahoma Calvert Academy public virtual school program supports the essence of the Oklahoma Charter Schools Act and propels Oklahoma students forward into the 21st Century workplace.
