What People Like

We asked our parents and students what they like about OCA. 
Here is what they had to say!

Parents

1.

Individualized 

 

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.

2.

Christ-centered 

 

God’s love is exemplified, offering a safe and peaceful environment where students are kind and courteous.  We pray and study the bible together

3.

Great environment

 

Small class sizes allow the teachers to get to know each child personally and care for them individually

4.

Child loves to go to school

 

The natural result of all we do to ensure the kids are successful

5.

Excellent teachers

 

Good ideas are just that, ideas.  It’s all in the execution, and excellence requires Godly mentors who are superior in skill and knowledge

6.

No homework

 

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

7.

Field trips

 

Every month our students explore real-life learning and have shared adventures

8.

Community service

 

Selflessness can only be learned by doing selfless acts.  A servant’s heart and humility are key to being Christ-like

9.

Discipline - Honor/Respect

 

Our biblical approach to discipline supports the traditional values of respecting authority and honoring our peers

10.

Rigorous - without the stress

 

Making it fun inspires a kid to work very hard and learn more, without the pressure of performing or fear of failure

Students

1.

Laid back classroom with couches

 

A comfortable environment helps the students relax and just be kids

2.

Teacher is awesome/loving

 

Relationships are the key to inspiring children.  If they know the teacher is on their side, they will work that much harder

3.

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

4.

No homework

 

They constantly read at home and often take home work themselves, but don’t consider it homework

5.

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

6.

Bible study/prayer

 

Can you believe it…the students themselves highlight this as one of their favorite things about OCA

7.

Welcoming Community

 

We require kindness and courtesy, and the kids love going to school where they know they won’t be teased or laughed at.  

8.

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

9.

Go to camp every year

 

Hume Lake offers a fantastic Christian camp where students find Christ through play

10.

Learn a lot

 

100% of our students are successful and excel academically
