Join Us for a Virtual Tour of OSA: for Prospective, New, and Returning Families
Thursday, April 22, 7:00- 8:30 PM
How We Are Doing:
These are uncertain times, and it’s challenging enough to know what we will be doing in two months, so planning for Fall 2021 is going to be an evolving process. One thing we know for sure is that One Spark Academy is nimble, creative, and has a strong team of dedicated educators. Our full team has remained intact. At this time, One Spark Academy is operating remotely, with the exception of outdoor classes (Fitness Club, Hiking Club, and Seeds & Sprouts at our outdoor garden classroom). We also will be resuming indoor classes when it is safe, at Art Trek in Newbury Park, our temporary location. We will be securing a more permanent location sometime this summer, where we expect to resume in-person classes this coming fall. By April 22, we will not likely have information for you about our future indoor location (somewhere in the Conejo Valley region). Instead, we will share with you how we’ve adapted, what we know about where we’re going, and what you can expect for your child from a One Spark education. Key words? Flexibility, trust, and a spirit of adventure.

Parent Meeting for Fall, 2021: Thursday, June 10, 7:00 – 8:30 PM for incoming families, new and continuing. (RSVP not available yet)
Pre-Registration guarantees early sign up FOR 2021-2022 (late July via email) and first dibs on placement in limited enrollment directed core courses, such as direct math, ELA (English Language Arts), or Mapping the World, all which are full-year courses and can easily fill by the start of the year. Pre-registration is highly recommended for students who are sure they’re going to take classes at OSA, and/or plan to attend core yearlong courses, and/or attend full time. OSA staff plans in advance for our pre-registrants; they are guaranteed space in most or all courses of choice.
