Day in the Life

General School Mission

Oak City Academy believes students are best served when their education is centered on Jesus Christ and built upon encouraging relationships through a curriculum that capitalizes upon the developmental periods in a child’s life.

A Typical Day

Imagine walking into a beautiful and well-ordered Pre-K/K classroom with child sized shelves full of engaging hands on materials adorning the room. Fresh flowers at a child’s work table, an international floor rug, and Classical music in the background all add to the ambiance. Twenty young children from all walks of life are gathered around the rug, receiving a lesson on a new math work that is being introduced that day. The children's eyes are wide with excitement as the teacher silently demonstrates the lesson then directs their hearts to how great God is. The students are reminded that just as the lesson has an order and beauty to it, so God has an order and beauty to everything he does.
