We are the leaders of tomorrow, with the skills and competencies to be collaborators, communicators, critical-thinkers and problem solvers. We are risk-takers that learn from experience in order to succeed in an ever-changing world. In order to accomplish our mission, and mold our students become future leaders, there is a lot of work to be done in the present. As such, the OTA curriculum and program is rigorous, is designed to become more rigorous each day, and is replete with high expectations. It is not for everyone, and students who are disinterested in or unwilling to put forth exceptional daily, and often hourly, effort are not encouraged to enroll at OTA. In addition to continuously pushing our students to high academic achievement, OTA embraces an expectation of personal and social responsibility toward oneself, and each other.
