Although many of the college preparatory students have gotten to know each other well in their online courses over the last four years, for many of them, this will be their first time meeting face to face. On Friday, June 12th, parents and students will join for a senior breakfast before the graduates head to Six Flags Magic Mountain and then a dinner and dance event. Finally, the seniors will have a formal commencement and receive their Oaks Christian Online High School diplomas on the Oaks Christian campus on Saturday, June 13th.

This year, 100% of the graduates have been accepted to four-year universities, such as The King’s College (NYC), Savannah College of Art and Design, Loyola Marymount University, Winthrop University, Pepperdine, Trevecca Nazarene University, Niagara University, USC, Cal Poly Pomona, UCSB and others. The students submitted 59 applications and there were 39 offers of admission. Currently, 55% of the seniors received academic, athletic or leadership scholarships to the colleges they are attending. OCO credits the students’ hard work and the OCO four-year college counseling courses, virtual college visits, face to face college tours and college guidance modeled after the Oaks Christian main-campus college counseling program with this success.
