For over four decades Oasis Christian Academy has existed as a private school serving the greater Winter Haven area, providing an educational experience that is authentically Christ-centered and relevant.
OCA was founded as Haven Christian Academy in 1977. The Academy has gone through many changes in its forty-five year history. What has not changed in those forty-plus years is our unwavering philosophy that this academy be a Biblically-based, academically rigorous institution that understands the value of parent-partnership in education.
Simply put: we are who we say we are, and we deliver on our promise to provide a high quality, distinctively Christian education relevant to 21st-century learners in order to prepare students to leave us ready to impact the world for Christ.
We proudly earned our accreditation in 2012, through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and in June 2017, we earned our re-accreditation status for a full five years through ACSI. OCA will re-submit with ACSI in 2023.
We are also pursuing accreditation with Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FCAPPS) and Florida Christian Association of Private and Parochial Schools (FCAPPS).
