the best of both worlds
Piloted in 2016, OCA set out to provide an alternative solution to private education and homeschooling by blending the advantages of the two models. The founders, inspired by God’s call and the community’s need, desired to see a Christ-centered, family-oriented, affordable, and excellent K-12 education option for young families.
Our Science curriculum incorporates living books, annual nature studies, and hands-on activities and experiments.
We offer introductory athletic training in cross country and soccer after school - go Archers!
At Onward, we seek to provide a centralized experience for the homeschooling family by offering courses two days per week in all core subjects, in addition to a variety of exciting electives. Teachers write the lesson plans for the other three days that students are at home. Parents get to skip the planning and spend time educating and playing with their children. Onward Christian offers flexible programs for K-8 students; parents are given the option to sign up for tutoring or study hall in place of certain classes; students in upper elementary have the ability to sign up for the electives that interest them most.
Students participate in a plethora of electives courses - Art, Chess, DIY, Music, Recreation, and many more!

Compelling school-wide reading incentives keep kids motivated to read regularly. A student who loves to read loves to learn!
