Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at OCVS!

Orange County Virtual School (OCVS) is the home of the Chargers! Our faculty and staff are proud of our school and our students’ accomplishments. This year, we are once again excited to be ranked as an “A” school by the Florida Department of Education. We appreciate the hard work of our students and staff and the wonderful support of our parents and community.

Here at OCVS, I strive to provide an atmosphere of learning where students in all grade levels can achieve their educational goals from a flexible, innovative, and unique online teaching model. It is my hope that all students realize their educational aspirations in a new learning paradigm. I cannot thank our administrators, teachers, counselors, and support staff members enough for their dedication and commitment to our students and their families. I could not ask for a better team of professionals to work with.

OCVS has grown rapidly over the last few years and is in high demand. Our success is attributed to several factors but is a direct testament to the direction that education is gravitating towards. Today, between both our Full-Time and Part-Time programs, we service over 20,000 students in the district, and we are ranked first amongst District Virtual Instruction Programs in the State of Florida based on the number of our student enrollments. We were also recognized by Florida Virtual School (FLVS) as 2019 Franchise of the Year for our accumulated success and progress as a school. These accomplishments have exceeded all my expectations and have truly made me proud. However, I continue to raise the bar to challenge myself, administration, teachers, staff, and students as we seek to maximize our potential. Together, we will continue to learn without boundaries.

My true objective as the Principal is to make a difference in the life of each student that enters our dynamic learning environment. I feel blessed that we make such lasting impressions on our students and families, as virtual learning is the trend of the future.

On behalf of our dedicated and high-performing team, I want to say thank you to our students, parents and the community for trusting our school, and for your continued support of OCVS. We are embracing the following theme for this school year, “Grit to Great…Striving for Excellence, One Student at a Time”, because we know that with just a little grit, we all can be great!

Let's make this a great school year!

Ms. Brandi Gurley

Orange County Virtual School, Principal
