It's a Match!

We have a $250,000 donor challenge! Every dollar given for Ozark's Administration Building renovation project until October 15, 2024, will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000! This will give OAA a combined total of $500,000 towards our $1.5M Administration Building renovation!

The work has already started. Paint samples are on the wall, carpet squares are in the hallway, and the drop ceiling has already been removed from the lobby's ceiling. The interior of the administration building is being updated to make a space more conducive to learning, and we can't wait to see its final transformation. Donations for the renovation project may be made via the link below.

Ozark Adventist Academy has started a process to craft and execute a Continuous School Improvement -CSI Plan. To do this, we put together a Continuous School Improvement -CSI Team composed of 16 representatives from school staff, teachers, parents, and community members. The hard work and commitment of this team has produced a CSI Plan with 5 main goals and accompanying action steps that came from the priorities evidenced from the data used to assess our school needs. The school CSI Team will continue to meet once a month to go over the progress that is being made in each one of the goals and action steps. Corrective actions will be taken and revisions will be made to the plan as tasks are completed and progress is made toward achieving each goal. All are invited to join us in our efforts to move OAA forward.
