Opening in 2013, Oak Creek Community dedicates its efforts to providing year round schooling in the greater Killeen area. Getting away from the traditional school setting, our school gives students the opportunity to grow academically at their level of learning!
After eight years as an educator, Tracy Hanson opened Education Connection, our child development center for children six weeks to four years old. When Tracy started to see the needs of the kids changing in her center, she realized she wanted do more to provide nontraditional instruction to these children. Thus Oak Creek Academy was founded, providing a safe and inclusive learning environment where students are able to receive the extra support they need.
Oak Creek Academy believes that all children with all abilities can be successful in a stimulating environment that provides exploration and unique opportunities for learning. We create non-traditional learning environments that focus on celebrating what is unique about each child. All of this is made possible with the on-going support of therapists, assistants, teachers, and parents.
Oak Creek Academy empowers a community of learners in an enriching, non-traditional learning environment. Our students receive individualized, differentiated instruction to meet specific learning goals and needs.
Our classrooms feature low student to teacher ratio, and are taught by a highly-qualified teachers and paraprofessionals. Students are taught using individualized, differentiated instruction methods using an array of curriculum. Our student body is made up of all students: neurotypical, gifted/talented, ADHD, autism, dyslexia, down syndrome and any other ability a student may have. With lower student to teacher ratios, one-on-one and small group instruction are common practices. Support from 40 plus therapists is available if needed to support student learning in the classroom. Therapists, teachers, and parents collaborate to enhance the success of the student.
