Philosophy & Goals

Scripture encourages the development of a personal work ethic. “In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you are working for the Lord not for men. Remember that you will receive your reward from the Lord, which He promised to His people; You are serving the Lord Christ” (Col. 3:23, 24).

Learning to work, to be punctual, and to faithfully perform assigned duties are as much a part of education as any other aspects of school life. The work-study program is a vital part of Seventh-day Adventist education.

Goals of the work program are for each student to:

  • Learn good work habits which will equip you for success in life.

  • Develop stability of character, perseverance, fortitude and courage to surmount obstacles.

  • Learn problem-solving skills, practicality and common sense, self-reliance and resourcefulness.

  • Develop the ability to work together to accomplish a goal and to be accountable to your supervisor and your coworkers.

Work Experience Program

Oklahoma Academy was established on the premise that learning to work in practical lines is necessary and is as much a part of education as is math, history, and other disciplines. While school is in session, every student is required to work 20 hours a week. This is a part of the work experience program and no remuneration is given. The quality of the work and the worker is evaluated and a grade is given along with one unit of credit per year. Students will be given a Work Experience Certificate upon graduation documenting their work experience while here at Oklahoma Academy.
