Welcome to

OPEN TENT ACADEMY

Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.

Open Tent Academy offers families an exciting opportunity to change the way learning happens at home. Advances in internet bandwidth, and educational technologies now allow OTA to bring anyone, located anywhere in the world, a variety of quality classes, covering a wide array of topics and subjects.

For 2019 – 2020, OTA is offering 125+ classes for grades 1 – 12 across three terms (Fall 2019, Winter 2020, and Spring 2020), with course subjects ranging from traditionally structured to out-of-the-box.

NEW THIS YEAR:  We are offering 5-week classes for our youngest elementary students!

The rest of our classes are either 10-weeks, 20-weeks or 30-weeks sessions depending on age and subject matter.

OTA classes are at 9 am ET (6 am PT), 11 am ET (8 am ET), 1 pm ET (10 am PT), 3 pm ET (12 pm ET) AND new this year, 5 pm ET (2 pm ET)!   We are working hard at being accommodating to our west coast and Hawaii families as well as “after-schoolers”.

All classes are presented “live” in a virtual classroom, Jigsaw, where students can see, hear and interact with their instructor.  Additionally, all live classes are recorded for later viewing. In addition, OTA uses a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas, where students can access all class materials on a 24/7 basis, turn in homework, receive feedback, take tests and quizzes, submit projects, and work together in cooperative groups.

Change the way you are educating your child!

Come take a look at what Open Tent Academy is all about!

Open Tent Academy is an inclusive and non-sectarian program, open to students from all backgrounds.
