Our Children’s Academy opened in the fall of 2006.  The free Polk County Charter School (which includes bus pickup from various locations around the county) offers a unique educational program where educators, behavior specialists, and therapists work together to achieve the goals set for each individual child.  Students are taught regular core subjects such as English, Math, Science, and Social Studies in a hands-on creative learning environment.  Many students are also taught skills to prepare them for employment. Teachers are certified and highly qualified, and physical, occupational and speech therapists are available multiple times a week.  Behavioral analysts are also on staff to work on behavior modification when needed, and together these dedicated professionals ensure we are meeting each child’s social, intellectual, medical and behavioral needs.  As of July 1, 2014, OCA began offering grades 6-8 on campus as the former Our Children’s Middle Academy merged to truly be one Our Children’s Academy.  9th through 12th grade were added for the 2016-17 school year and as of July 1, 2017, OCA has become Victory Ridge Academy!
