Col. 3:23, 24
“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”
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.
