Coming Together to Explore Our Online Learning Academy

As many brick and mortar students transitioned to remote learning during the pandemic, with varying degrees of success, many families are left wondering: Can online education be a good fit for my family?

We recognize this is a big decision and researching can have conflicting results depending on your experience and sources.  Even as educators, the choice to go online for each of us had to be done thoughtfully.  At our Online Learning Academy, we acknowledge that not all programs are the same and want to be as transparent and helpful as we can in providing information and resources for families and schools wrestling with this decision.

We encourage you to reach out to Oaks Christian Online School directly with any questions you may have, but we also understand the value of thinking through things in your own time and space.  To support you in that, here is a video series featuring some members of our team as they unpack some online learning considerations.
