OCEAN ALTERNATIVE

School Profile

 

Ocean Alternative Education Center was established in the spring of 1995. The school began with four students and has grown to 75+ students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. There are four credentialed teacher/consultants, who work closely with homeschooling families to provide individualized educational support, resource and reference guidance, classes, clubs, workshops, and personal contact. The Principal and Administrative Secretary run the infrastructure and day-to-day functions of the school.

 

OAEC has weekly activity classes that include:

  • Focus Groups in math or literacy
  • science class
  • social skills lessons
  • art classes
  • theatre classes

Also offered are:

  • Ocean Online
  • clubs - gardening, baking, singing, leadership, etc
  • yearbook projects
  • field science and special destination field trips
  • a talent show
  • an annual science fair
  • other community events

As a homeschool community, OAEC provides a variety of parent/family activities each year. The annual Winter Talent Share is a favorite event for families. Other events include family nights several times a year, family beach days, and an annual science fair. The spring and fall camping trips are excellent ways for families and staff to connect, share homeschooling experiences and have fun together. Our monthly field science trips or community field trips are open to students and their family members.

The monthly Parent Support Group meetings give parents an opportunity to share learning experiences and resources with each other. OAEC also has an active School Site Council which gives parents a voice in the decision making process of the school. Parents also help in our library, with Scholastic book orders, and the Box Tops for Education program.
