Our schools create an educational choice for all students. Our staff connects with students to empower and inspire them to achieve their goals and make their dreams a reality.


Serving Students Grades 7-12


Find Your Way

Options For Youth is a fully-accredited public charter school helping students find their passion and achieve their dreams in a safe and productive learning environment.




Students work independently at a pace tailored to their ability and learning level, as teachers provide individualized attention and guidance. The low student-teacher ratio allows each student to meet one-on-one with their teacher to discuss schoolwork. 


College Prep

College and career counseling is provided to every student. Juniors and seniors attend FREE college tours and learn what to consider when selecting a school. Students also take part in workshops that expose them to college application processes.


Blended Learning

In addition to independent study courses, students can participate in small group classes where they think critically and collaborate with others on assignments. OFY also offers onsite Math and English tutors in a variety of online courses.


Flexible Schedules

Students can enroll any weekday of the year; there is no need to wait for classes to start or the semester to begin. Once enrolled, students, parents, and teachers partner to create a class schedule that respects and meets the needs of students.
