The school board of OCA works tirelessly to ensure the mission of Oasis Christian Academy. As an independent entity unaffiliated with any specific ministries, our school board is a vital component of the academy. They bring a diverse and varied insight, as the Lord has called them from different walks of life. While board members are volunteers, they are intrinsically involved in overseeing and confirming best practices throughout OCA.
Our mission is to preserve our history, clearly defining where we came from and following God’s plan for the Academy’s future. We will seek God's plan for the future of Oasis Christian Academy by continually being in prayer, reading and studying his word, and listening to Him. We believe in being committed to excellence in education by maximizing available resources and understanding our proper role in overseeing Oasis Christian Academy with openness and integrity. We are committed to the Oasis family we serve by providing guidance, support, and encouragement to all stakeholders, striving to honor God with each interaction, and working for the individuals, families, and school as a whole.
"Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed."- Proverbs 15:22 (NASB)
