Our faculty and staff are talented and gifted individuals who are dedicated followers of Christ specifically called to fulfill the mission of Oasis Christian Academy.  The OCA faculty and staff are spiritually mature believers called to serve, and equipped by God with hearts for furnishing instruction to and cultivating the hearts of our students in order to best prepare them to impact the world for Christ upon leaving OCA.

Our faculty bring a wealth of expertise and educational knowledge to our academy. In addition to maintaining educational certification with ACSI, 100% of our faculty have a bachelor's degree, 15% of our faculty have a master’s degree, over 60% have been teaching for 5 years or more, with over 50% of those teachers teaching for 10 years or more.

"…but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher." - Luke 6:40 (NIV)

Early Education

OCA offers a half-day, five day a week Early Education preschool program for three-year-olds & a program for four-year-olds through VPK.  Our goal is to nurture and encourage every child's positive self-image in an atmosphere of love and caring by focusing on essential childhood developmental areas through a domain-based environment.  This practice, encompassed in a Christian setting, provides the backdrop for an early education curriculum that offers opportunities for each child to grow in the awareness of the love of God as we partner with parents.  Our fully accredited preschool program offers a low student to teacher ratio and small classes where children can explore, develop, and interact with other children in a fun, structured setting.

Elementary Education

Our elementary school program anticipates big changes in the lives of our "cubs."  Our students come to Kindergarten inexperienced, but with limitless potential.  Later, when they graduate from fifth grade, our goal is to produce more self-sufficient adolescents capable of navigating middle school.  During these formative years at OCA, we want to partner with parents to further the development of these students spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially as they begin to discover who the Lord wants them to be.

Middle School Prep

As Oasis Christian Academy continues to grow, we have found a need to regroup our older elementary/ pre-middle school students that we are calling Middle School Prep.  Our desire is to transition the upper elementary student into a successful Middle School student by focusing heavily on the core subject of math, grammar, spelling, literature, and science.  These core subjects are critical to the continued development and eventual admittance into Middle School.

Middle School

Middle schoolers are transitioning from children to adolescents.  This period of life is full of significant changes. We at OCA, want to guide our students through these transitions as smoothly as possible.  We understand this is a time in life when they are beginning the long transition towards adulthood; we deeply desire to partner with parents to undertake this walk together. Our goal is to prepare our students to enter high school as well adjusted individuals who are closer to being the person the Lord wants them to be with perhaps an inkling of what the Lord may be calling them to do.

High School

High school is a pivotal time in the lives of our students.  It is an essential time to focus on preparation for college as well as adulthood. The process begins in eighth grade with the placement of your students in one of two academic tracks that will focus on a specific college prep program. All of our high school students take the PSAT, PLAN, SAT, and ACT as part of their academic requirements.  Prep classes for these tests are offered as electives periodically.  The process that starts in middle school then culminates at graduation with our students stepping out into the world prepared to live the life to which the Lord calls them.
