Summer Reading for Students - 2017 Reprise

Because this is a great time to engage your middle- or high-school age children when they just don’t want to do school work but are still open to learning.

Welcome to Sanctificate - the Ozark Catholic Academy (OCA) blog.

We chose this name for our blog to emphasize our school’s mission, vision and philosophy as summarized in the four Latin terms in our coat of arms – Libertas, Doclitas, Veritas, and Sanctificate. While each term is essential to fulfilling what happens within the school community, it is also important to fulfilling what we take outside of the school community, thus Sanctificate is the ultimate aim of an OCA education.
