UVA participated in documentary filming to air on 170 public broadcasting stations nationwide

(BATON ROUGE, LA) – University View Academy (UVA) is a tuition-free, public K-12 online charter school where students can excel using a rigorous, state-approved curriculum under the direction of Louisiana-certified teachers. For over a decade, UVA has provided a school choice opportunity for residents across Louisiana that promotes flexibility, adaptability, innovation, and individualized learning for K-12 students.

UVA was selected to participate in a documentary feature as part of “Viewpoint with Dennis Quaid.” The 2023-24 school year was spent curating ideas, filming interviews, and capturing footage to support our feature titled “Advancing Student Education Through Virtual & Online Learning Solutions.”

The short documentary feature launched last week as interstitial programming on over 170 participating public television stations throughout the U.S. During the next year, the feature will bring national awareness to the innovative learning opportunities provided at UVA. On average, segments air 45-60 times per quarter, so the UVA feature will have an estimated reach of roughly sixty million households and businesses. The five-minute video can also be viewed on UVA’s YouTube channel here.

UVA Superintendent Dr. Quentina Timoll shared, “We are excited to have been chosen as a feature for “Viewpoint with Dennis Quaid.” It’s been said that UVA is the best kept secret. Now is the time for UVA to be known, seen, and heard as the best-in-class school choice option for Louisiana families. We partner with parents on school choice because we know UVA students prosper when parents take an active role in their education. UVA students learn and excel at their own pace. We offer families an education that is student-centric, flexible, adaptable, and innovative. At UVA, our students and families come first.”

Enrollment is now open for the 2024-25 school year. Admission is open to students across Louisiana.
