Latest News and Announcements

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 who met several times during the months of September and October of the 2023-2024 school year. 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.
