an Oaks Christian junior, has taken advantage of a
blend of main-campus and online courses in order to
pursue her passion: dance. Kendall is part of the
3-23 Area Kidz dance crew, a world-champion hip hop
dance team out of Los Angeles. The team consists of
57 dancers and incorporates modern, African, Latin,
and other innovative styles. Kendal has been dancing
for 5 years and has danced on the junior varsity
dance squad at Oaks Christian School as well. She
had been dancing technical and tap, but once she saw
the team at Oaks Christian, she wanted to return to
the jazz-funk style. This year, Kendall dances on

and OCO full-time, online senior, travels the
country showing and competing with her Paint horses
from her home in Ohio. The American Paint Horse
Association and the American Pinto Horse Association
together boast over a million registered horses and
hold annual junior events for showing and competing.
Megan and her horses show in both English and
Western in the all-around events. While Megan
competes with the top 20 in the nation and has
earned multiple world and congress titles and
championships, she hopes to be the number one youth
in the country before her career is up. She has
qualified for the Pinto World and Paint World Shows
each year and has been one point away from the World
Championship winner in the past.

Longan has recently signed with Vision Los
Angeles, a selective model management agency located
in Los Angeles, CA. The 5'11" high school student
has done an e-news fashion segment, videos, test
shoots, casting calls and would like to do runway
and print modeling. Andi was introduced to the idea
of modeling by her older sister, Shelby Longan, who
is currently studying Neurobiology at ASU and who
has high interest in the fashion industry. Andi has
been scouted for several years and has been
preparing since then for the 15-16 year-old
category. Andi returned to the Oaks Christian
main campus for the 2nd semester of her junior year
but has maintained a blend of online classes to
facilitate her career.
||Oaks Christian Senior,
Catherine Michael received non-profit 501(c)(3) status this week for
her charitable organization, Building an Education Foundation.
Catie is excited to help the El Tranisto Centro de
Nicaragua as her foundation's first charitable act. Catie first visited the art center located in a
rural fishing village on a week-long mission trip
and then, after finding out about their education,
employment and environmental missions, re-visited
director Julie Sim Edwards to find out what more she
could do to help. As a start, Catie's non-profit
will provide a much-needed avenue for charitable
donations to the center's local, annual children's
art competition. Catie enjoys blending her courses
with main campus and online classes in order to free
her time for her passions including charity work and
obtaining her pilot's license this year.

has recently been cast as a principle role in the
film "Street Ships" produced by Regan
Young. While on the back lot at Universal Studios
this week, Julia commented on the film, "The
characters turn their cars into pirate ships and get
their whole street to play along. It has this whole
Peter Pan whimsical mood to it." Julia plays a
supporting role, as the friend of main-character
Alex, and they go on magical adventures together.
Julia is college-bound and lives locally, but works
fully online to give her the freedom to act, sing
and pursue her dreams.

Westlake Village, CA. Radhika attends online school
partially to give her time to explore the classical
Indian dance style of Bharatanatyam. She has been
dancing this form for ten years but has been
focusing since September on preparing for her three
hour, graduation-style solo dance debut, also known
as Arangetram. Radhika has been building stamina and
trying new choreography in order to complete the 9
required dances and to show her personal style and
love of the dance. Radhika will be attending the
Oaks Christian main campus in the Fall of 2016.

the one thing all OCO students have in common is that they
are serious students who are college-bound, want a
high-level education, enjoy and value the faith component of
their day, and are thriving in the online environment. OCO
is excited to expand the Oaks Christian mission
through online courses, providing an educational experience
that is college preparatory, Christ centered and world
class. Oaks Christian Online school also looks forward to
supporting other Christian schools across the country in creating
this form of flexibility for their students as well.
