ORLA

The Olympia Regional Learning Academy is comprised of four separate programs that provide unique learning opportunities for students:

  • hConnect is for students in grades K-12 and offers support to families who serve as their children’s primary educator through home-based instruction. Parents may enroll their children in a wide variety of on-site classes in the core subject areas of science, language arts, social studies and math as well as offerings in world languages, visual and performing arts, music, technology, physical education/health, poetry and many others. Parents may also choose from a wide assortment of curriculum for use in their coursework at home. Families meet regularly with certificated staff to discuss their children’s individual learning plans. To view our current course offerings, visit http://orla.osd.wednet.edu.
  • ORLA Online offers students in grades k-12 a quality education with the flexibility to choose the time of day and place where they work on their classes in an online format. Students may be enrolled full-time or they may be enrolled part-time and dually enrolled with another OSD high school.
  • ORLA Montessori provides multi-age classes observing and supporting the natural development of children for K-5th grades. ORLA Montessori follows the educational model established by Maria Montessori, where the teacher serves as an observer and guide. Learning is child-directed and emphasizes the freedom to learn, combined with child responsibility.
  • Middle School Academy is an Alternative Learning Experience School (ALE). Students are part of an academically focused middle school that is made up of small class sizes, block scheduling to provide time for deeper learning and exploration, teachers who team together to create units of learning that complement the core subjects of math, ELA, science, and social studies, once a month field trips that provide hands-on learning opportunities, and on-campus requirements that are not full day, every day.

ORLA is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission  and Association of Education Service Districts in the 2018-2023 school years.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.

 

Due to pandemic-related school closures, 2019-20 MAP assessment data is not available.
