High School students are encouraged to keep the graduation requirements in mind, and with the advice of their parents and secondary principal, they can design a challenging course of study. The graduation requirements offer each student the opportunity to acquire a sound college- and career-ready education. Beyond these basic requirements, students may choose to take four or five courses in other disciplines.
They can graduate with up to a year of college credit by means of Advanced Placement (AP) courses and off- and on-site concurrent enrollment. OCA uses the state standards as the baseline and the ACT standards as the ceiling in curriculum development. By providing a Kingdom Education, we require all teachers to reveal God through these academic standards.
Students in 7th – 12th grades can elect to participate in athletics, fine arts, or technology activities. Students are encouraged to experience different types of extracurricular activities during their time at OCA. These enrichment opportunities are viewed as formational experiences to help students mature spiritually, physically, and academically.
