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 an exciting opportunity to change the way learning happens in your home. Thanks to the internet, learning has changed tremendously. Because of this, OTA is able to bring anyone, anywhere in the world, quality classes on an array of topics and subjects.

For 2017 – 2018, OTA is offering over seventy-five classes for grades 3 – 12, ranging from traditional classes to out-of-the-box subjects. All classes are presented “live” in a virtual classroom as well as recorded for later use. In addition, OTA is using a state-of-the-art Learning Management System where students can access 24/7 all material needed for class as well as turn in their work and receive feedback, take tests and quizzes, turn in projects and work in cooperative groups.
