Our children have blossomed in the challenging academic environment with the support and encouragement to be their best. I would highly recommend OJA for parents and students who want to develop a love for learning and a joy of service while following Jesus.
My child got hit on the forehead with a racket and the P.E. Teacher did not even care about giving any attention. Her forehead was swollen and he did not even have ice put on it. Her teacher was aware of the incident too, and did nothing about it. She had several times over a three day period where she complained of a headache. She could have had a concussion as there are different forms of it. Very disappointed in the leadership at this school.
My third son will complete his last year at OJA this year. We are sad to have to leave this hidden jewel in college park. They have a great school garden used for education and the lunch program which is run by Chef Kevin from K restaurant. A lot of money has been spent on the facility this past year and it is looking great. My graduated sons are able to compete with the best in high school. OJA offers a blessed environment for all who enter it's doors.
My son has gone to oja for the last two years and I love it, and most importantly so does he. The school is a very close family, you can feel the warm enviornment as soon as you walk in. The students are always so polite and the staff are welcoming. I have been so pleased that my daughter is starting pre-k this august. Oja has been a real blessing. Also top knotch education!
They have excellent academic programs. The school has a great curriculum that includes Saxon-Math, Foundation and Pathways for Literacy, Music PK-8th, Band, Choir, and Full time Spanish and Computers. P.E. has a formal curriculum and extracurricular sports activity such as PeeWee basketball for Pk-1 and all the way up to 8th grade with Soccer, baseball, basketball among others. Its the best in Orlando.
As an OJA alumni and parent of three children (the third will graduate this year) I can say with certainty that Orlando Junior Academy is indeed a school of excellence. OJA takes a whole child approach to learning and has a family atmosphere second to none. This is the best possible place for a child to be educated academically and in the ways of the Lord.
