See The Difference for Yourself
We have asked our parents and students here at Oakdale Christian Academy what it is that they like most, here is what they had to say.
Every Child is unique and learns differently. We specialize in customizing our instruction to meet the students not only at their level, but also their interests.
God's love is exemplified, offering a safe and peaceful environment where students are kind and courteous. We pray and study the bible together.
Small class sizes allow the teachers to get to know each child's personality and carte for them individually.
Child Loves to go to School
The natural result of all we do to ensure that our students are successful academically and emotionally.
Good ideas are just that, ideas. It's all in the execution, and excellence requires Godly mentors who are superior in skills and knowledge.
Most homework just doesn't contribute to learning for K-8 students. Actually, our students often do learning activities at home, but since it is reasonable and relevant, it doesn't feel like homework.
Every month our students explore real-life learning and have shared adventures that will last a lifetime.
Selflessness can only be learned by doing selfless acts. A servant's heart and humility are key to being Christ-like.
Discipline - Honor/Respect
Our biblical approach to discipline supports the traditional values of respecting authority and honoring our peers.
Rigorous -Without Stress
Making it fun inspires a kid to work very hard and learn more, without the pressure of performing or fear of failure.
Laid Back Class - Couches
A comfortable environment helps the students relax and just be kids, as well as promoting learning by removing the "stuffy" feeling of average classrooms.
Relationships are the key to inspiring children. If they know the teacher in on their side, they will work that much harder.
Freedom/ We are Trusted
The only way a child becomes trustworthy is by being trusted. A classroom based on trust requires fewer rules and allows for more freedom.
They constantly read at home and often take home activities to work on themselves, but don't consider it homework.
Field Trips/Minimum Day
We dedicate Fridays to targeted learning and fun activities. If we don't have a field trip, we end the day at noon, allowing families a head start on the weekend.
Can you believe it, the students themselves highlight this as one of their favorite things about going to OCA, further demonstrating that our students grow emotionally as well as academically.
We require kindness and courtesy, and the kids love going to school where they know they won't be teased or laughed at.
Great Environment - Fun
It's not necessarily that we play a lot of games, but rather when a student works hard and finds success, it just feels good.
Go to Camp Every Year
Hume Lake offers a fantastic Christian camp where students find Christ through play.
Learn A Lot
100% of our students are successful and excel academically.
