Oklahoma Online Student Excels at Piano and in the Pool


Written by: Jenna Needham

How does 16-year-old Tulsa resident Shawn Chen excel at piano, swimming, and school? Shawn and his parents attribute his success to Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy (OVCA). Shawn has been enrolled in OVCA since he was in fifth grade.

Shawn was homeschooled since first grade, but his family wanted a program that was a better fit for him.

“We found OVCA when we were looking for a better alternative that would still allow him to study at home," said Shawn's mother, Xuemei Zhao. "Shawn also had so many hobbies that he wanted to spend more time on so he needed the flexible schedule.”
