• Is OCA open for in-person learning for the Fall 2021? YES! OCA has been and will be open for in-person learning as much as it depends on us. We have been open for in-person learning for the entire 2020-2021 school year and have had no transmission of Covid-19 among staff and students at school.  

  • Will OCA provide an online option for students this Fall 2021? No, all learning will be in person. 

  • Will OCA students be required to wear masks this Fall 2021? We do not yet know what the NC governor will require for face coverings and masks in private schools. With current options like vaccine availability, therapeutic options, and low incidence for major complications among children, it is our desire for children to not wear masks this Fall. However, all private schools are mandated to follow state and health department requirements. We hopefully anticipate more guidance on this to come mid July. 

  • Are there seats available in every grade? Seats are available in various grades for the upcoming Fall 2021 school year. Make sure to view our WAIT POOL information in the next (green) section below prior to applying. Please keep in mind that OCA receives applications and seat acceptance responses daily, thus this information stays fluid and can change at any time.
