Parent Q&A

What is the first day of school for Optima Classical?
August 10th, 2022
Will OCA add any more grades beyond 8th?
Our plan is to add grades 9-12 one year at a time so that no scholar at OCA will age out, or need to complete their classical education elsewhere once enrolled.
Will OCA add grades K-2?
OCA is very different from other virtual schools as we expect our scholars to operate as independently as possible. Our K-2 scholars require more parent involvement to complete student led activities. After grades 9-12 are added, then the implementation of grades K-2 will be explored. Please stay in contact.
What do I do if my child is absent or needs to be absent?  
Please contact us at, with the subject Line "(INSERT STUDENT NAME) - ABSENT (INSERT DATE)"
What is  the attendance and tardiness policy at Optima Classical Academy?
Optima Classical Academy believes that a prompt arrival to class, and consistent attendance are essential to the learning process for our students.  Our formal absence and tardiness policies can be found in our family handbook here
Will Optima Classical offer any field trips and clubs?
Yes, Optima Classical will have several clubs, and may, from time to time, have in-person learning opportunities.
Is there anything I can do to help? (Volunteer)
Yes, please email to learn more about opportunities to partner with OCA.
Who can I contact if I have other specific questions? (staff)
