I have had a parent conference with my daughters teachers recently, and I can honestly tell you, that I left there feeling so grateful! So grateful that my daughter has teachers that not only care about her grades and learning, but also care about her as a student and her walk with the Lord. They go out of their way to help her succeed. I am so very grateful that God led us to Oasis and that our daughter is at a school where she can thrive!

This is our first year at Oasis and it has been amazing so far. My little boy has felt and home and comfortable from the first day. All the teachers and staff is absolutely amazing. Couldn't have picked a better school for my first grader. Looking forward to many more years!

Oasis Christian Academy is a fantastic school; one like no other. I have 2 children attending elementary and 1 in high school. They love their school, as do we, as parents. The teachers are caring and at the same time they expect the best from the children. They take their time to ensure that all students understand the material and utilize many forms of teaching/learning methods. The administration is dedicated and involved. This is not just a school. It's a community.

We have been affiliated with OCA for ten years. Our six children are safe and can talk and learn about Our Lord Jesus Christ. The staff is readily available whenever you need them.

My son is currently attending Kindergarten. With the background in Early Childhood Education, I knew finding the right "school family" for my son and his younger siblings is important. Since day one, we have been treated like family. His teacher has been doing a TERRIFIC job at making sure he is staying on task and even taking her time to be sure each student comprehends what is being taught. The genuine love and caring atmosphere is all I have ever wanted for my children to attend a school like Oasis!!!Thank you!

We recently started our son at Oasis in the high school. He came to Oasis from a smaller K-8th private school. The adjustment has been wonderful thanks to the staff and students at Oasis. Our son comes home everyday telling us about his day and the friends that he is making. The thing we like the most is the feeling of family when you walk through the doors. Thank you Oasis for making this transition easier for our son!

This is our 3rd year at OCA and my daughter LOVES it there. She loves the atmosphere and really enjoys the chapel services and Bible classes. She has been blessed with some amazing teachers that really go the extra mile to help her succeed. We love the Christ-centered school that Oasis is and it stem right down from the hearts of the leadership. We are very thankful that we have such a great school that offers a great education and cares so much about the hearts of the students.

I am very pleased with our decision to enroll our kids in OCA. The Administration, Faculty and Staff are extremely talented and driven towards the success of every student. I especially appreciate the accessibility we have with the teachers to discuss issues or ask questions.

My daughter began OCA as a 2nd grader in August 2014, it has been absolutely wonderful. Prior to attending OCA, she was very shy and timid and wasn't happy at school at all. Public school had not been a good experience for her. Since starting here, she has come so far. She loves it. The teachers are extremely helpful and very patient. The administration will work with a parent any way possible to ensure the best interest of the kids are met. Alexis has been truly blessed with an amazing school. I would recommend OCA a thousand times over. Truly a great school. Dana Cameron

My husband and I have been so pleased with the quality education our two girls have received over the past four years at Oasis. I leave every with peace knowing my children are in a safe, christian, environment where the bible is a part of their daily lessons and they are not only taught the skills they need for each grade to prepare them for their future, but they are instilled with biblical character and values that will help them operate in a society that needs to see the love of God. Thank you Oasis for all you do to educate our children. We are blessed!

Let me sum it up by saying this: my children went to school here when it was known as Haven. We moved back to NY for two years. My husband died and I knew I had to get them back here. I knew they would be loved and cared for. So keep this in mind...would I drive all the way from NY back here for the SOLE purpose of them going to OCA if I didn't think it was worth it?

The teachers are so helpful and caring. They have been a huge blessing for my daughter. The faculty is amazing. This is a safe, christ-centered atmosphere that has allowed my daughter to grow stronger academically and spiritually. OCA has much to offer. We couldn't have chosen a better school!

My son JT has been going to Oasis Christian since Pre-K and is now in 2nd grade. This is a top-notch school! All the teachers are very caring, hard-working, and knowledgeable. JT is learning so much and is reading at least a year above grade level. The Science and Spanish classes are just amazing! He is also learning so much about the Bible and loves God very much. We just love this school!

God is doing His work here at OCA by using faculty ,staff , and administration for His glory . Ezequiel was very afraid with his disability he would not be accepted. From Pre-K until now in 1st grade everyone involved with him has added core values to him . We can do all things through Christ. We are tremendously blessed with OCA and highly recommend this awesome school.

This is my daughters first year, she absolutely loves Oasis!! The staff takes time with each student and makes sure their weaknesses are made into strengths. Class size is small which allows each student to learn and grow at their pace but also keeps them on track. The familes that attend are very friendly and we have felt welcome. My daughter has also been involved in diving and softball, coaches are amazing and Christ is kept center in all things.

We have 2 children attending OCA. One middle school and one high school. It is not a "just get by" school. The work is rigorous and I feel my children will be ready for college when they graduate. I have been very pleased with all of the faculty. They genuinely care about us. It is a family atmosphere at OCA.
