Upper School (9th – 12th Grade)
We are pleased to offer the high school experience at Ocean View Christian Academy. This year our program will be delivered by a combination of teacher-led learning, video-based instruction and self-paced work. Exposing them to multiple ways of learning, our students will use a combination of A Beka curriculum, discovery-based learning (problem solving), project-based learning (critical thinking), and classical methods of education, to best prepare them for their next steps in life.
We believe that the high school experience should prepare a student to be successful in any endeavor in life. Building on the basic skills and fundamental knowledge gained in the lower school, our comprehensive academic and spiritual program equips our students with critical thinking and problem solving skills; and it instills in them the confidence and courage to apply and use those skills. We believe the close, constant and caring engagement of parents and teacher with the student is at the heart of our program, and ensures the student will be well prepared for the next step in their life’s journey. Whether it’s university, an apprenticeship program, the workplace, entrepreneurship or the arts, whatever your student chooses, he or she will leave OVCA assured that they are prepared.
We also believe that high school is the best time and place a student, with the help of their parents and teachers, identifies and prepares for a worthwhile and personally meaningful pursuit for their life after high school that also honors God. Because all learning at OVCA is from a gospel-centered, biblical perspective and incorporates God’s plan to reach people, we believe that the OVCA High School experience offers the best opportunity for the student to learn and practice Christian disciplines that are in concert with their life’s pursuits.
A Beka Book is a comprehensive, quality curriculum written from a Christian perspective. Now more than ever, each child needs a strong foundation in both academics and character; the A Beka curriculum helps us give students the knowledge and skills they need.
