Advanced Studies is committed to equity and access for all students. Through OCPS, your student has access to a variety of advanced programs, including Advanced Placement, AVID, Cambridge, and International Baccalaureate.  We also believe that active minds require the development of healthful habits and lifestyles. We accomplish this through our K-12 health and physical education programs.
