A Legacy Of Student Success

Since 2004, California Online Public Schools (CalOPS) has welcomed students into its virtual classrooms as a network of six tuition-free online public schools. Upholding its commitment to believing, connecting, and empowering all with empathy, the school strives to help students learn positive lifelong strategies for a successful future.

Driven by a mission that prioritizes growth opportunities beyond academia and powered by the curriculum flexibility of a charter school, the WASC-accredited schools guarantee students receive the highest quality education.

Six Schools, One Mission​

Through its six charter schools, CalOPS fulfills its mission to educate and empower compassionate global citizens by leveraging 21st-century education resources on behalf of students who need a more personalized approach to learning to maximize their potential and meet the highest performance standards.

CHARTER SCHOOL NETWORK

While legally separate, the schools operate as a single entity to serve students in 32 counties across the state. The schools share staffing, policies, and resources to provide a unified educational experience.
