Campus Tours:

Tours take place twice a month on Thursday at 1:45 pm.  Our campus visit program lasts approximately two hours, and features a parent officer-led information session. We welcome students and parents to join us. RSVPs are required for all Campus Tours, and the number of attendees per family is limited to three. Please do not show up without making a reservation. Due to the high level of interest in OSA, we are only able to offer slots to students and parents/guardians who are currently in 5th-10th grade.
