  • OCA 's High School began in August 2010 with 9th and 10th grades. Our High School is fully accredited through Georgia Association of Christian Schools (GACS) which is recognized by the Georgia Board of Regents. Therefore, it is accepted by colleges wherever SACS is accepted. Our students have the same opportunities for the Hope Scholarship as students from all other schools.  On November 7, 2011, our Jr/Sr High School students moved into a new building.

School Reviews

  • Recommended February 14, 2013 - My daughter has attended OCA for 13 yrs and will graduate 5/2013. We feel that she is well prepared for college because of her education attained at OCA. The Fine Arts department has allowed her to gain and strengthen her love for music, drama and band. - Posted by Parent
