School Notes

  • In a time when college acceptances are getting hard to come by, the achievements of recent OVCA students are not only getting them in the doors of colleges, our students are getting to choose from several colleges where they would like to attend. Our last two graduating classes of 26 and 22 students earned scholarships of over $1 million and $700,000, respectively. They were accepted at dozens of colleges and universities all over the country, and are currently studying at UC and State schools, east coast schools, and faith-based schools.

We have two students enrolled at Ocean View Christian (NOT the public Ocean View Hills). We are pleased with their academic progress, and the caring environment they are in. They have very small classes, and also teach how to be a good person. I would recommend this school.

Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
