There are many reasons why families today are
choosing to have their children study online. Some families want the
flexibility to pursue travel and outside passions, some want their children
to expand and diversify their coursework, and others want a jump-start on
college education with the hope of reducing college tuition costs by taking
dual-enrollment courses. Whatever the reason, there are more than 1.5
million U.S. students being educated online today, and it always comes down
to one thing - the student (and his/her learning experience).
A number of Oaks Christian Online School students talk about the benefits of
their online learning experience in this video.
At this time of year parents are beginning to
think about summer school and fall enrollment for their children. Oaks
Christian Online School is offering over 60 college preparatory classes,
honors, and AP summer school classes and has begun accepting applications
and enrolling full-time students for Fall 2012. Oaks Christian Online School
stands apart from other schools in that:
They're Christ-Centered in everything
do, say and teach..
Excellence & Achievement --
that excellence honors God and inspires people, thus they prepare students
to achieve at their highest potential.
Character & Citizenship -- they believe
honorable character & citizenship are the responsibilities of OCO
students and a lofty aspiration for their futures.
Future Leadership -- they prepare OCO
students to be equipped with the mental, physical, social and spiritual
competencies necessary to become humble stewards of their God-given
gifts and talents.
College Preparatory -- they require thorough preparation and
consistent execution in all schoolwork and OCO activities and
A Nurturing Environment -- in the
midst of significant challenge and high standards, every student
experiences the love of God and the importance of being one of His
A Mind for Leadership and a Heart for
Service -- their
spiritual life program is an important element of the Oaks Online
experience, addressing the whole student--not simply the mind, but the
heart as well. While completing 20 hours of community service per
year, students are guided through a socially-interactive course that
focuses on their Bible curriculum for that year, chapels and more.
Lifelong Learning -- comprehensive
knowledge and critical thought will become hallmarks of the well-read
and confident alumni of OCOS, who develop knowledge, wisdom, and
conversational intelligence that go well beyond high test scores and
grade point averages.
"The best part about taking my classes online is that I am able to work
at a pace that makes the material not only manageable, but enjoyable without
being intimidating. It allows me to take longer on areas that are
significantly more difficult, spending time trying to find out how I could
learn specific topics instead of skipping ahead and feeling overwhelmed."
