Ozark Adventist Academy knows that the cost of a Christian education can seem overwhelming. Regardless of your financial situation we will make every effort to make an education from Ozark possible. There must be a balanced financial plan for the current school year and the account must be kept current. Parents are responsible for any variation in the budget listed in the financial agreement. The account must be paid before a diploma, transcript or transfer grades will be issued.

The account for the applicant or applicant’s siblings for previous years at Ozark Adventist Academy must be paid before the student may enter school for the current school year.

Ozark Adventist Academy has a work program in a variety of areas. Students may earn approximately $2,500 during the school year. The amount can vary due to class schedule, student's motivation, and extra-curricular activities.

Again, if you have the desire for your student to attend Ozark, please give us a chance to design a monthly payment plan to fit your budget. If you have any questions or would like to arrange to visit the academy, please call 479-736-2221.

Payment Methods

There are two methods of payment for your child’s education at OAA. We will assist you to determine which method of payment would be best for you.

  • The first method of payment is payment in full. A 5% discount will be awarded for paying a school year in advance (3% for a semester). Payments made by credit card or debit card will not receive this discount.  Students receiving financial aid are not eligible for this discount.
  • The second method of payment is to enroll in a monthly payment plan for monthly automated payments (ACH).  Payments made by credit or debit card will have an additional processing fee.

International Students

OAA is happy to welcome international students who are interested in a Christian education and who understand the unique mission of our school; however, we have a limited number of places open to international students. Refunds are only permitted for serious illness when it is the attending physician’s opinion that the student should return home. Refunds are not available for other reasons, including disciplinary withdrawals.

Ozark Adventist Academy requires that all international students pay the total school fees before an acceptance letter for a student visa may be issued. International students are not eligible for discounts or student aid. English language assessment testing may be required of students in order to determine proper placement in classes. Early payment discounts do not apply.

International Students must provide English translations for all school records, transcripts, immunization and medical records.
