This is a great school with teachers, staff, students and others who actually care about you unlike other schools. They all treat you like a part of a family, a family in Christ with brothers and sisters and adults who are like aunts and uncles. Great curriculum. OJA focuses on each student and helps them learn in different ways. You have access to the gym, cafeteria, launch lab, school clinic, office, outdoors. You have different classes like engineering or tinkering, choir, band, computer sciences, arts, sports, the edible schoolyard garden across the street, and many other things. But most importantly you get all the necessary classes like Bible, math, science, English Language Arts, social studies and more! I recently graduated from here and have great experiences here. Great school for your children in all grades.

We selected OJA because of the creative experiential learning environment using the nutritional science lab, edible education experience garden, technology, art, music, language, and sports integrated with core curriculum. We have been thrilled with the dedicated, caring teachers who go above and beyond to help our students learn, grow and succeed.
