Oasis Christian Academy is proud to offer multiple Career Academies that allow our high school students to experience a multitude of potential vocations.  Once enrolled in an Academy, students will have the school year to explore different facets of that vocation to help determine if it could be something the Lord is calling them towards.  If not, then they can apply for a different Academy the following year taking with them valuable insight and lessons learned.
