The new staff is a blend of experienced teachers, creative teachers, and dedicated teachers. Primarily using the ABEKA curriculum, this school optimizes learning experiences through partnerships with the University of Central Florida, Central Florida Performing Arts, Art Reach Orlando, The Society of Chemical Scientist, the UCF Mad Scientists, and more. They offer a well rounded education with a focus on Experiential Learning. The new staff is committed to the well being of each child enrolled.

The teachers care about their students. However, the building is full of mold, roaches and is filthy. Half the time the toilets do not work because the septic system can not handle the use. Mr. McKinney does not provide the needed care for students such as speech therapist or special education evaluations. He uses the school as a tool to raise money for his programs. He will break the law and state regulations an d bully people into his will.

This is still a relatively new school, so you have to be willing to give it grace. For those of you who don't know, the school is affiliated with a non-for-profit organization known as United Global Outreach. The CEO/founder of UGO is a wonderful man with a heart for the people in Bithlo. However, I have many concerns with the school. OCA was created to provide children in the Bithlo area with a quality private education. Many of the children are considered "at risk" and unfortunately the teacher's there do not seem equipped to handle children in that capacity. The result is an awkward blend of being overly authoritative towards the children (which ends in everyone feeling frustrated) with little to no progress in academics,. There is also an endless stream of uncensored volunteers traipsing in and out of the school with little to no supervision around the children. This is very concerning, not only for the children's safety, but for the good and reputation of the school. I think with strong leadership, a unified and well trained staff, and the precautions expected of even a title 1 public school, OCA would be a fantastic school. Without those things, I would caution parents.
