Curriculum

Online High School

The goal of Oaks Christian Online is to provide rigorous, college-prep 100% online courses. Our students go on to their choice of four-year colleges. We offer high school students two tracks for graduation, an honors or standard diploma. Students who complete a standard diploma meet most college admissions requirements, including University of California schools. Honors diploma students go above and beyond, completing Honors and AP courses throughout their four years.

Online Middle School

Our thriving full-time Middle School students study four core academic online courses with the addition of our unique Jesus in Middle School (J.I.M.S) spiritual life class and a comprehensive visual arts course. Additionally, middle school students are allowed to select from our high school foreign language, math, and elective courses to customize their learning based on their academic ability and interest.

Online Curriculum

Our comprehensive curriculum development process utilizes the talents of Christian Subject Matter Experts, from the Oaks Christian School main campus, our partner school faculty members, and outside education experts who write middle and high school courses inspired by the content, objectives, sequencing and rigor of Oaks Christian School.

In addition, our high school online courses follow the University of California guidelines including completing a self-assessment against the 52 online course standards from the National Standards for Quality (NSQ). Oaks Christian Online courses also track against national, state, Common Core, and Quality Matters guidelines.

While a large majority of our courses are written by Oaks Christian Online, some curriculum is supplemented with carefully selected offerings from outside providers like Florida Virtual School and eDynamic Learning that are adapted and enriched to meet Oaks Christian Online rigorous objectives and theological engagement.

Finally, the curriculum development process for all Oaks Christian Online’s courses includes a review of opportunities for theological engagement, increased interaction with the teacher – through live, weekly sessions – and feedback about continuous course improvement. All Oaks Christian online high school courses are unique and meet the high standards of Oaks Christian School.

View our complete list of over 120 courses that track against and meet the highest standards of national, state, Common Core, and Quality Matters guidelines.

Dual Credit

Want to take a course on C.S. Lewis? What about ‘The Language of Film and Television’? Or, ‘Rock History,’ ‘Lyric Writing,’ or ‘Intro to Criminal Justice’? These are just a few courses offered by the colleges listed below.
Dual Credit Courses are year-long, college-level classes taught directly by an affiliated, accredited college. There is no AP exam, and students should check with the college they plan to attend about transfer requirements BEFORE enrolling in a dual credit course. Online high school courses are normally open to Juniors and Seniors. Check with the Oaks Christian Online College Counselor or Admissions Counselor before enrolling. We have given priority to institutions that offer Christian distance learning.
