Starting this fall, OTA’s courses will run on a trimester schedule consisting of three terms (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Each term is 10 weeks long, and most OTA courses will meet either once or twice a week, for up to 90 minutes per session. (The exception to this rule are our writing courses, which will continue to meet every other week, in order to give students ample time to complete their assignments.)
The weekly schedule applies to single trimester, double trimester, and year long classes alike. If a year long course meets twice a week, it is because OTA feels that class needs to be held at this frequency in order for the course to meet requirements for high school credit. Most courses that meet twice weekly are high school level math and foreign language classes; however, there may be cases where high school level history, social sciences and English courses may also run on a twice weekly schedule.
All prices are determined independently for each course, based on the frequency of the class. Please note the frequency of class meetings per week, and length of course term, so you can clearly understand pricing. Our goal is to give your children the BEST education we can offer while paying our teachers fairly, instead of undercutting the competition.
