THE OPTIMA CLASSICAL ACADEMY (OCA) WILL INTRODUCE THE WORLD’S FIRST VIRTUAL REALITY CHARTER SCHOOL IN NAPLES. — Optima Classical Academy (OCA) will present the world’s first virtual reality charter school in Naples.
On Saturday April 9, parents and students were invited to discover a new way of learning which should be introduced to thousands of students in August 2022.
“We are thrilled to be hosting a showcase at the Naples Classical Academy, one of our classic brick-and-mortar school options. Because virtual reality education is a contemporary and unfamiliar school choice option, some parents may be hesitant to embrace it. Our hope is that families in attendance will be able to see the breadth and reliability of the cutting-edge program we have created.”
Adam Mangana, Executive Director of Optima Classical Academy and Optima Domi
Students are said to be visibly transported wherever studies may take them – Pompeii, the moon or deep in the ocean for a deep learning experience.
“What we are offering has resonated with home-schooled, virtual, and in-person students and their families across Florida who have not been satisfied with existing educational options. Our goal is never to remove students from institutions that meet their needs, but to create flexible options for students who need something outside the box. Education is an ever-changing sphere influenced by many outside variables and being able to offer a non-traditional option that uses valuable technology is a step into the future.
OCA founder Erika Donalds.
The charter school is expected to enroll up to 13,000 students in August for students in grades 3 through 8.
10th-12th grades are scheduled for the 2023-2024 school year and for the 2024-2025 extension
the plan will be K-12.
