The Ogburn School

The Ogburn Online School is a fully accredited private online school with over 25 years of experience in distance education and online learning. Currently, we offer year-round enrollment options for kindergarten through 12th grade. We are a self-paced school so families can devise a schedule best suited for their needs. Students and parents have access to an entire staff of academic advisors and teachers for help and support. Our goal is to provide an affordable private school education that students can complete from the safety of their own homes. As an accredited school, we allow for transferring in and out of credits and completed grade levels, and graduates from The Ogburn Online School will receive an actual high school diploma. Most of our students go on to university or college, with many others attending a trade school, joining the military, or entering the workforce.

Qualified instructors provide real feedback for each submitted lesson, and are always ready to answer your questions. Students are even able to resubmit a lesson for a higher grade. Our curriculum meets rigorous standards, and is designed for you to be able to understand – no overly complicated design or unreasonable deadlines! Though we are never more than a phone call or e-mail away, you will find that the programs provide you with the tools you need for a complete education program.

Founded in 1997, The Ogburn School started as a traditional homeschool program. We soon evolved, becoming one of the country’s first accredited distance learning programs. Since our inception, we have supported thousands of students reach their education goals. And, you can feel good knowing that we were founded in Fernandina Beach, and are still a family owned and operated business!

Our students come from all over the country, but have one thing in common – they are looking for an affordable, flexible, accredited distance learning program that they can have confidence in.

We feel like our parents and students are our best storytellers – see some of our direct parent quotes below:

“Thank you so much.  You guys have been great to work with this year.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with all of you.  You guys have been so helpful!  I have recommended your school to everyone who asks for options with homeschooling”

“Dear Ogburn Staff,

I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter and I enjoyed being a part of the Ogburn Online School.  Everyone is very friendly and always ready to help with any problems or issues. Your staff goes beyond and more. My daughter is able to really focus on her studies and the flexible scheduling works great with my schedule and hers. I would definitely be recommending you to other parents who are looking into home schooling for their kids. I also wanted to say how I love the fact that you make everything from working with me through the enrollment process to the versatility of being able to maintain and manage my payments with ease. Everyone at Ogburn has done a superb job at making our first online school a wonderful and stress free experience. “

“I have to say we have been very pleased with the course work and ease of submitting work so far.  The outdoor education and earth science lessons are even more rigorous than what was offered at the local magnet school.”

“I want to say I am very impressed with the curriculum Joshua has this year and he is thriving in his knowledge and I am so elated that we found Ogburn and have you and the rest of your wonderful staff! Have a wonderful day!”
