Welcome To Greater Ohio Virtual School

 The Greater Ohio Virtual School is an accredited online high school. It is a comprehensive educational program for students in grades seven through twelve who reside in the state of Ohio. Our mission is to provide students with a highly personal and continuous connection to learning by utilizing an internet based curriculum. Every student will develop the skill of communication, the ability to engage in critical thinking, and the building blocks of education necessary for a successful future.
Our teachers and staff want the very best for each student. They pride themselves on finding ways for individuals to achieve success. GOVS teachers are state certified and highly qualified in their subject area. Education is focused around the student. Even students who are a credit or two behind will be provided with the tools not only to catch up but to graduate. Students are able to work at their own pace and tutoring is available on-site, off-site, or face-to-face. Students are provided a computer to do the course work and can earn a GOVS high school diploma. We recognize that each student is unique and embrace that. Although education is a high priority, we understand there are additional responsibilities in young people’s lives. Whether it is a demanding work schedule or family obligations, GOVS gives students the opportunity to complete their schoolwork when the time is right for them.
