Spiritual Life Advisor, Sam Farinacci, and OCO student, visit a retirement home with Calvary Community Church*

Piled in an 11 passenger van on our way to spend some time with the elders in our community, one of our #OnlineHighSchool juniors looks around and then looks back and me and says, “this is fun” with a big smile on her face. Earlier that night we had gathered at Calvary Community Church in Westlake, CA to travel with their #HighSchool youth group in their weekly service to local cerebral palsy homes and retirement homes. Sent with a prayer, each of the vans headed to their various locations. This year an #OCO student and I headed to a retirement home where we spent time talking with two female residents both of whom were suffering from dementia. Despite the gaps in memory and awareness, the conversations were ordinary and wonderful and a great opportunity to process life through different eyes. _When it was time to pile back in the van and head to In N Out for a meal, our OCO student said, “wow, the time went by fast”, referring to how smoothly and comfortably the time passed conversing with these women. Overall it was a great chance to serve together and have some fun along the way! Read more about #OCOnlineHighSchool here: http://online.oakschristian.org/

Oaks Christian High School Hosts TEDX Event

Local, full-time OCO students were able to join the main-campus of Oaks Christian as the school hosted a TEDx Conference. Students heard from a variety of speakers including a neuroscientist, retired NFL player, a magician, poet, photographer and more. TEDxOaksChristianSchool used TED’s celebrated format of short, carefully prepared talks, acts, and performances, which are given both live and through TED talks from TED.com on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder- and to provoke conversations that matter. It was an incredible opportunity for some of our local OCO students and an experienced enjoyed by all. #TEDx #TEDxOaksChristianSchool #TED #OnlineHighSchool #OnlineSchool #OCOnlineSchool Read More about #OaksChristianOnlineHighSchool here: http://online.oakschristian.org/

OCO 2015-2016 Announcement: OCO will be sending out re enrollment packets in February and is excited to announce that we've listened to our parents that would like to start the school year earlier.
The 2015-2016 school year will begin on Monday, August 10th, and the first semester will end on Wednesday, December 16th. Second semester will begin on Monday, January 5th and will end on Wednesday, May 25, 2016.
This change of calendar will do several things:
1. Seniors will be able to get completed first semester transcripts to colleges more quickly
2. Students who need first semester extensions will have two and a half weeks to complete those over the Christmas break
3. The school year will end earlier - making room for summer school and summer breaks.
*We're excited about some of these changes and will share more in our returning student packets coming out this month. * Check out #OnlineHighSchool here: https://online.oakschristian.org

Community Service Opportunity with Spiritual Life Department: Service is an integral part of the OCO motto, "Preparing minds for leadership and hearts for service," and all full-time OCO students have a 10 hour per semester community service requirement in their Spiritual Life course. OCO has at least two local service opportunities per semester, and OCO students, parent, faculty, and staff are invited to serve alongside Calvary Community Church's high school youth on February 2, 2015 from 6-8:30pm PST, in Westlake Village, CA. We will be heading to a retirement home and a cerebral palsy home to extend care to these two groups. #Homeschooling #OCOnlineHighSchool #OnlineHighSchool #Education #College #HighSchool
