See what our OA students are doing.
At OA, our supportive environment makes our rigorous curriculum an everyday adventure. From trips and advanced classes to performing arts, clubs, and STEM challenges, our students are meeting their future head-on and loving it.
Where will your OA adventure take you?
All students are assigned advisors, and meet once a week in a grade-level advisory group. Advisors monitor students’ well-being and academic progress, as well as serve as an advocate for students and a point-of-contact for parents.
Low Tech Tuesday
Every Tuesday during the morning break, we encourage students to put down their technology and play board and card games, go outside, hang out and talk to friends. It’s like device-free recess for high school students…and their teachers!
OA has a student council collective, which means that anyone who wants to get involved and help plan activities can be a part of student council. They meet every week at lunch, set up and run all-school meetings, plan activities, and take the lead on committees and group activities for the school.
Every Thursday the entire school community comes together for announcements from staff and students, activity planning, and friendly class competitions.
Many of OA’s clubs are student-initiated and provide a fun variety of interesting activities to participate in including volleyball, dueling, board games, yoga, Minecraft, debate, and more.
"The teachers and the student are awesome! They push you, and they never give up on you."
