Our  story

The Beginning of Something Beautiful

Outdoor Connect Christian Academy started in the heart of a Christian mother and educator with the firm intention to provide "MORE THAN ACADEMICS" to her son and other children that could benefit from a Chrisitan Education and learning Academics outdoors.
After several years of research on the benefits of learning academic content outdoors, OCCA opened its doors in 2017 as a Non-denominational Christian School serving students in TK and 1s Grade. For the 2018-2019 school year, OCCA serves students in TK-6th grade.
Understanding and experiencing the benefits of being a small non-segregated age school, OCCA intents to continue to be a micro-school where students can experience a nurtured home-like environment, receive an individualized curriculum, and gain life skills to become successful adults.

True education means more than pursuing a certain course of study. It has to do with the whole person, and with the whole period of existence possible to human beings. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers.  E. G. White
