Olin Virtual Academy

Olin Virtual Academy (“Olin”) is the operating name of Los Angeles County Online High School (LACOHS), an online, public, charter high school independent study program governed by the Olin Virtual Academy Board of Directors. Olin Virtual Academy is chartered through the Antelope Valley Union High School District in Lancaster, California. Olin Virtual Academy is authorized to enroll students in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino, and Kern Counties. Olin is a public school; and, as such, is governed by the regulations of the California Department of Education (CDE) and laws of the State of California for independent study, non-classroom based, charter schools.

Mission Statement

Every student deserves an opportunity to excel—an honest and real chance to reach their potential. At Olin Virtual Academy, our mission is to help high-school-age students fulfill their individual potential. Olin’s online learning instructional model will continue to leverage research – based, 21st century learning skills in order to create self-motivated, competent, life-long learners who participate effectively in society. We will continue to provide an excellent educational alternative for the thousands of high-school-age students within Los Angeles County and all adjacent counties who, for a variety of reasons, do not attend high school, or may benefit from a non-traditional school setting.
