Vicki Conway, Oaks Christian Online High School founding Director, to speak at Online Educator’s Symposium for Independent Schools.

Oaks Christian Online (OCO) School’s Director, Vicki Conway, will speak at the Online Educator’s Symposium for Independent Schools (OESIS) at Eton College in Windsor on March 25th, 2015. Vicki will speak to a group of independent school leaders from the UK and US about a sustainable blended and fully-online learning program. Oaks Christian online high school is part of the acclaimed Oaks Christian main campus in Westlake Village, CA, and since the online high school’s inception in 2010, OCO has been in a unique position to understand how high school main campuses use blended and fully-online high school classes to facilitate sustainability and flexibility for its students.

Luyolo Matyumza, from Pretoria, South Africa, enrolls to complete an American diploma with an online Christian college-preparatory high school. New Oaks Christian Online (OCO) junior, Luyolo Matyumza, had the flexibility to start her Junior year online in January of this year.

Luyolo went to a Quaker high school in Delaware until the end of her sophomore year when she became homesick for her mother in South Africa. Her mom had received an undergraduate degree in education while in the United States and then returned home to work in an international school and continue her graduate degree online with Concordia University. Because Luyolo's previous school had been International Baccalaureate based, she found herself looking for a rigorous, Christian, college-preparatory education online, and she found it with Oaks Christian Online High School in Westlake Village, CA. Thanks to OCO's flexible schedule, abundance of college-preparatory classes and world-wide reach, Luyolo was able to take care of her school concerns with geography and timing by enrolling online with Oaks Christian. "I was involved in every activity imaginable in Delaware, including being the journalism editor, playing volleyball, and playing trumpet in the band," Luyolo states. "I want to continue that work-ethic and excitement while I'm in South Africa. I'd love to attend New York University some day, and I believe that Oaks Christian Online High School can help me stay involved and accomplish that."

Beloved teacher, Amy Harriton, moves from main campus to online school.

Oaks Christian Online (OCO) welcomes Amy Harriton from the acclaimed Oaks Christian School main campus faculty to her new role with the online school. Amy will move from English teacher and co-department chair to Dean of Students with the online school as the founding Dean, Stevi Jones, transfers to Texas. Amy has been teaching for 14 years and has recently been teaching Honors and CP Argumentation and American Ideology as well as AP English Language and Composition on the main campus. She has taught in private, public and independent schools, and her previous courses have ranged from Journalism and American Authors to the classics. When asked about her favorite books, Amy replies, “My favorite book is the book that’s in hand. I have a love of the classics, though, and I’ve read the Scarlet Letter thirteen or fourteen times; every time I read it I learn something new about the way Hawthorne puts language together.”
