What OAO Offers in Your State

Welcome to Optima Academy Online’s national course catalog page, where we have ‘hacked’ time and space—harnessing the power of virtual reality to deliver educational enrichment opportunities anywhere! Students can explore virtual classrooms, museums, and historical landmarks, bringing lessons to life in a way that textbooks simply can’t.

West Virginia Hope Scholarship Partnership

OAO is excited to partner with West Virginia’s ESA program, West Virginia Hope Scholarship, to bring affordable education solutions to your family. Scholarship funding can be applied to both field trips and courses.  Want to learn more about the process? Contact our admissions team at oao-admissions@optimaed.com.

Virtual Reality Field Trips

We offer a twelve-month subscription to our VR Field Trips. During these twelve months, you can spend as much time in our uniquely created Metaverse environments as you like. Each environment has its own theme, learning experiences and adventures. Plus, each adventure in our explorations is a single user experience, aside from our in-system learning guides, offering you top safety as you journey through.
