About Opportunity Charter School
Opportunity Charter School is a New York academy serving students in grades six through 12, helping anyone who wants to learn regardless of their previous academic performance. Those who are enthusiastic about learning, whether they have proven themselves academically or struggled in the past, are welcomed into OCS to benefit from an organization committed to each student's potential. Located in Harlem, Opportunity Charter School focuses on performance and results when teaching students, helping them to transition to college with a clear understanding of their strengths and weaknesses as well as how to use their strengths to the best advantage.
One of the current initiatives at OCS is a partnership with Y.U.N.G. Harlem University for three courses. The subjects at hand for students enrolled in these courses include branding, entrepreneurship, and television and film production. The courses demonstrate to students the marketability of academic skills in the hope that they will become more confident about and interested in learning.
