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 a 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!
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.
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.
