ABOUT US | OAK CREEK COMMUNITY

WELCOME TO OUR INCLUSION, PRIVATE SCHOOL

THIS IS WHO WE ARE​

This inclusion school is the only one of its kind in Central Texas. So what makes our school so great? First, of the 83 students attending the school, over 92% have some form of special needs, with more than 77% of the children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Second, our non-traditional classrooms provide these students what they need to learn and succeed. Too often traditional school settings try to put a square peg into the round hole. But, at Oak Creek Academy, we understand that every child is unique and learns differently! We hope you decide to join our family here at OCA!

WHAT WE BELEIVE AT OAK CREEK​

OUR PHILOSOPHY

It is the belief of Oak Creek Academy that every child deserves a high-quality academic program that addresses the social-emotional, language, cognitive, and physical aspects of a student’s development. Using research-based curriculum, formal and informal assessments, effective teaching practices are implemented to fit the individual child. We further believe that the aspects of a student’s identity including race, religion, language, family structure, political beliefs and heritage play a significant role in our program and are incorporated into our curriculum. We invite all parents and members of the community to actively participate and share information with us. 

SMALL CLASS SIZES

We keep our class sizes small so each child can get the individualized attention and education they deserve.

FULLY INCLUSIVE

The diversity of our student body helps to teach empathy, compassion, and understanding amongst peers.

ONE-ON-ONE

We have a teacher and a paraprofessional in each classroom to help students with the one-on-one and small group learning they need.

INTEGRATE THERAPY

With the support of therapy services such as CBTS and Elite Therapy, students are able to get support and services in the classroom setting.

OUR CLASSROOMS ARE UNIQUE

KEY FEATURES

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.

HELP US CONTINUE TO GROW AT OAK CREEK

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

Oak Creek Academy is providing an invaluable service to families in the Killeen and Bell County area. Did you know that as a non-profit 501c3, we do not receive any government funding for building maintenance, supplies, facility upgrades, education costs, or scholarships – and tuition alone doesn’t cover all of our costs. Which is why we need people just like you to help us make a difference in the lives of our special needs children. Many of the families with exceptional children who would benefit most from a non-traditional learning environment are unable to cover the costs of tuition. But with your help we can offer scholarships, cover educating costs and staffing, upgrade our building, and watch our amazing community grow.
