"OCA captured my interest from the beginning with its integrated approach to liberal education—keeping in mind all aspects of the person and forming each person to be their best. In addition, teaching in a small, intentional community provides excellent experience in working with and for others, that our life has a greater purpose when we live and learn and grow to lead and serve others our families, friends, and communities."

Ozark Catholic Academy engages students in a rigorous, integrated education that enables them to behold the fullness of reality through both faith and reason and to live the virtues that make one fully human and truly free.
Ozark Catholic Academy aims to implement the Catholic Church’s mission of sanctification and evangelization through the Catholic intellectual tradition by graduating young men and women who:
• learn widely and deeply for life and seek the truth in all things;
• possess insight, imagination and critical reasoning as well as communicate clearly and persuasively;
• strive to live the virtues of wisdom, justice, courage, and moderation as well as faith, hope and charity;
• sanctify themselves, serve others effectively in love and truth, and evangelize the world as they live out the vocations to which they are called.
Ozark Catholic Academy’s philosophy is to foster an educational culture of discipline and excellence that cultivates the whole person, intellectual, spiritual, moral and physical, and inspires a dedication to what is true, good and beautiful. Essential to this culture are exceptional, dedicated teachers who serve as mentors to their students as well as assist parents in their role as the primary educators of their children. Through an intimate community of parents, students and teachers, the young men and women of Ozark Catholic are prepared not only to become excellent professionals and leaders of service in their communities, but to become all God intends them to be.
