Opportunities For Learning (OFL) is a FREE public charter school, serving students ages 14 and up who have fallen behind in school, are looking to get ahead and graduate early, or simply crave a non-traditional learning environment.
OFL was established in 1999 by a family genuinely and profoundly interested in the well-being of California young people. They saw potential that struggling students couldn’t see in themselves. For over 16 years, OFL and its founders have helped more than 140,000 students find their passion and equip themselves with the knowledge to pursue their dreams. OFL believes in fostering student dreams.
At OFL, inspiring students inspires us. We believe the student-teacher relationship is critical to a young person’s social, emotional, and academic success. When you visit our locations, you’ll find students working one-on-one with highly qualified, passionate teachers and advisors. We take endless pride in the quality of our staff and the deep connection that each of them share with every OFL student.
Today, OFL offers different methods of instruction, creating what we call a ‘blended’ learning model. This innovative approach to education allows students to learn with great flexibility through:
- Independent study
- Small group (SGI) classes
- Online courses
- One-on-one, single-subject tutoring
- Hands-on, experiential activities, trips, and cultural excursions – click here to learn more!
Many OFL charters are Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) partners. From enrollment to graduation, these partnerships empower OFL students to prepare for success in today's economy through career exposure, networking events, college and career entry planning, critical skill building, and certificate and internship opportunities.
Ask any OFL Alum and they’ll likely tell you that their time at OFL taught them critical study and life skills and fostered a deep sense of pride and responsibility - click here for more from OFL Alumni. We welcome you to visit one of our centers so that you can witness the magic of true connection firsthand. For many students, OFL has been a beacon of hope after years of academic struggle, and we’re eternally grateful to have been a part of their success.
