2019 update! A few years ago, we wrote a paid advertorial for Provost Academy online school. Since then, it seems that the school’s gone out of business. The latest post on the Provost Academy Ohio Facebook page is from 2017, and the link to the Provost Academy homepage is dead.
There’s some information on the Columbus Dispatch about Provost’s troubles with enrollment policies here. You’ll need to register to see it.
There’s another article from the Akron Beacon Journal here that says “The school received $1 million from the state for educating 162 students. When the department looked, it found just 35 full-time students. That calculated to an overpayment of $800,000 in state money.Provost Academy must make a reimbursement. Then, factor into the equation that 39,000 students attend online charter schools in Ohio, the state putting up roughly $275 million a year. How much of that sum has been obtained through false claims?”
Provost Academy is an online school that connects students with peers, mentors and opportunities to grow and learn.
