Our Mission, Vision, and Core Beliefs

Orion High School was conceptualized by teachers who foresee the value of online learning for students of all ages. Orion exists to meet the needs of our customers by providing the highest quality digital learning. Our goal is to provide the best high school program in the country, regardless of whether that program is “brick and mortar” or online.


Our Mission

As the premier online high school in the country, we are helping students achieve their goals of high school graduation and beyond by producing students who are high performers no matter what they choose to do in life.

Our Vision

Empowering Learning. Renewing Hope.


As a simple slogan and vision, these four words espouse the founder's vision of empowering individuals to take charge of their own learning, while renewing hope in the promise of education.  Simple, but powerful.

Our Core Beliefs

  • Orion believes that all learners, regardless of their past history with education, deserve a high quality, flexible way to learn content in a rich, supportive, online environment.
  • Orion believes that learning is active and not passive. That online content can be rigorous and challenging, but can help learners exceed their own expectations for learning.
  • Orion believes that content is not departmental - content must be integrated to be meaningful - to provide meaningful learning for learners.
  • Orion believes that improvement is continuous and that Orion's existence is critical for learners who need to be challenged and need to be provided with the support necessary to be part of a high performing world outside of Orion.
