This fall the AOA school counseling department launched Counselor Café, a meet up for students to ask the school counselors questions related to academics, personal growth, college planning, career exploration, and more. Created as a relaxed, informal time where students can ask questions, get answers, and gather resources, Counselor Café is different from our typical online classes. The counselors love to see your faces, so feel free to share your webcam in our Café to connect with the group and ask your questions. [Read more…]

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We have much to be excited and thankful for as we enter the fall. At Alpha Omega Academy, we hope to challenge and inspire all learners to succeed through our school and, as a result, impact the world for the sake of God’s glory. We want to encourage all students to deepen their faith, pursue knowledge, cultivate character, and ultimately be released as servant leaders into the world. As a school, we value and are motivated to present education through a biblical worldview, so students understand that all knowledge reveals God’s truth and character for us as His children.
This past summer, teachers went through intensive training to refine their biblical integration skills, and administrators developed processes and systems to help students become more successful. As a school, we want to be intentional about shaping a Christian worldview and help train children in the ways they should go. [Read more…]
