FAQ's for Blended Model Families

I've heard about the wonderful school events and programs OCA provides for students and their families. Can Blended Students be a part of these whole school events?

All Blended Model Students are invited to participate in whole school events such as "Christmas ADVENTure," Grandparent's Day, Field Day, and End of Year Class Parties. 

Do Blended Model Students get to go on school field trips?

Yes! OCA's curriculum aligns with wonderful field trips throughout the year. Though a Blended Model Student's Tuition does not include Field Trips costs, all BL Model Students and their parents are welcome to attend field trips with their class and pay the minimal fees required by the programs. 

 

I can't decide on doing the Blended Model or Full Time option. Can I switch from Blended Model to Full time mid-year if I change my mind?  

May be. Families may switch from BL Model to Full Time (as long as there is a full time seat available) but NOT from Full Time to BL Model.  Any BL Model families who later move into the full time program pay the fee difference including the New Student Fee.

I know that some of your classes have both Full Time and Blended Model Students in them. What does that social/emotional dynamic look like between the students?

It's pretty amazing! The Full Time students miss their BL Model friends when they are gone and have come to not only look forward to, but cherish, "Blended Model Days!" Other classes are Blended Model students only. Enrollment numbers determine how the classes will or will not mix.  

I've never homeschooled before. Will I be able to do this!?!

Absolutely! We make it easy and describe OCA's Blended Model Program as "homeschool on a platter." We provide the lesson plans, curriculum,  report cards, and even sample daily schedules for your home days. We have also helped pair up new homeschool moms/dads with more "seasoned" homeschool moms/dads! 

Do I need to open a homeschool or keep my homeschool open?

In 2019, the NC Department of Non-Public Education said it is no longer necessary to open a homeschool or keep your homeschool open if your child is enrolled at OCA. Your child now comes under the academic responsibility of Oak City Academy. Some families choose to keep their homeschools open for other siblings, etc, however it is not required that you do so. 

Will the Blended Model Program ultimately become a self-sustained classroom at each Montessori level?

Yes, because OCA's Blended Model Montessori program is so popular, it will eventually become its own program (separate from the 5 Day model).

Do you accept Blended Model families who have the opportunity scholarship?

Yes! Students all still go through the Admissions Process, but we do accept the Opportunity Scholarship which pays for the entire K-6th grade Blended model tuition. Though the Opportunity Scholarship covers tuition, parents are still required to pay all fees.  

Additional Notes about Blended Model: ​

Due to OCA's growth, we can no longer guarantee that BL model siblings will be scheduled for classes on the same days. When it is an option, a lottery will be drawn to determine the days families will have BL model classes on. The "Blended Model" at Oak City Academy is created specifically so that parents can remain highly involved in their children’s education. In fact, for this model to be successful, it requires a high level of involvement from the parents. This model allows for parents to spend more time with their children in home education without the stresses associated with running a school, planning curriculum, etc. Children will attend OCA 2-3 days each week (depending on their grade), in which they will get to experience our rich Montessori style of education with a blend of Classical methodology as well. At home they will work abstractly on concepts using take home packets and handouts provided by the school. The Blended Model Curriculum Fee provides curriculum  through both digital curriculum access and paper copies of curriculum guides. Additional curriculum materials (or curriculum in different/preferred formats) is the responsibility of the parent.
