OCA ACADEMIC LIFE
Rigorous college prep curriculum; developing each student's God-given potential.
Academics at Ozark Catholic Academy engages students in critical thinking and teaches them to become self-regulated learners in preparation for success in college and in life. Our faculty actively engage with students to promote better understanding and develop the skills to form and articulate valid opinions. Through the Socratic teaching method, OCA students learn to hear and be open to different ideas. We are committed to an interdisciplinary view of education. This is evident in both our Humane Letters course, a combined study of History and Literature, as well as in our Math and Science curriculum, which encourages students to think creatively and across the disciplines.
