The SAT 10 is a national standardized norm-referenced test. When we are communicating with our scholars you will not hear teachers refer to it as a test. Unfortunately, in this day and age many of our scholars have been exposed to stressful, high-anxiety inducing situations due to excessive, pressure-filled testing situations. When scholars are stressed they do not do their best. This is why our school has decided that rather than doing “traditional testing,” we embark on a school-wide "questing!"
We happen to know there are many ways a person can be smart, and it is not only measured by good grades in Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts or English....It's through the theory of Multiple Intelligences developed by Dr. Howard Gardner.
Boosterthon is underway! Today we had a great pep rally, and learned more about our most fitness-filled FUNdraiser for our school!
We are delighted to announce that over these next few months, our brave scholars will be taking flight across the globe to pursue passion and mission! Please support them with love and donations.
On Wednesday, January 4, just before our return from winter break, we opened the doors to Grace Center with a Housewarming Party for Walter, our resident robot. Our family and friends met together to celebrate this special time.
Once a year we have a week where we create a special environment for scholars to dive into discipleship and be given age appropriate opportunities to further explore their faith.

At OSOTA, we love to feature scholars, parents, and families who are using their god-given talents in full color. Allow us to introduce alumnus Michael A. Romaniello, a gifted artist whose groundbreaking work will leave you speechless. Michael is a holding a special art camp this July for scholars in grades 5th - 12th, and it's sure to be an amazing experience.
Moments of such senseless loss of life can leave more questions than answers. Times of tragedy and times of blessing give us as parents a unique opportunity to reach and to guide the hearts of our kids. It’s a beautiful truth that in our most vulnerable moments of deep pain and sorrow that God is near to us.
We give a lot of attention to our scholars who blow us away every day with their talents, gifts, and innovative ideas. And rightly so! But it’s not every day we can celebrate our talented, gifted, and innovative parents. So today is that day! Laresa Tapia, Mark and Carolyn Izzo have really raised the bar on what it means to be creative thinkers and doers.
This summer, we are inviting our rising 6th and 9th grade scholars to attend a truly amazing experience at Camp Sparta. This camping experience will give scholars the chance to build relationships—before the start of the school year, to eliminate pressures, and provide character building activities, team exercises, indoor/outdoor activities, as well as times for devotions and worship. The opportunity to connect with teachers, pastors, coaches, and staff will strengthen our scholars’ confidence as they set out to discover their true identity this coming year.
