Jubilee Neighborhood School
The Jubilee Neighborhood School (JNS) is an educational program that “wraps around” the public school program for children in grades K-5 with working parents. Fees are reasonable and many families qualify for scholarships.
Wrap-Around Kindergarten Education (WAKE)
This program provides afternoon kindergarten classes for District 200 students living in the neighborhood surrounding the Center who receive a half-day of kindergarten in the public school program. The children come to WAKE before or after their public school kindergarten class for enrichment activities, individual skill building, and Christian education. Class is from noon - 6:00 p.m. Transportation from public school is provided by District 200.
Summer Day School
Summer Day School is an eight-week program with five classes for grades 1-5. Classroom activities include math and language arts, problem-solving activities, Christian Education, physical education, and recreation that includes swimming and field trips. Summer Day School is Monday-Friday from 8:00 am- 4:00 pm. Tuition for the programs is reasonable and scholarships are available.
Throughout the school year, the Tutoring Program provides academic support for elementary students who need extra help in reading, writing, and math. The students attend tutoring sessions twice a week in the afternoon. Each student is matched one-on-one with an adult volunteer tutor. Our tutors assist the students with their homework and academic goals while providing a positive adult role model in their lives.
Big Buddies is OCC's mentoring program in which a caring adult volunteer is matched with a child age 7-15. This intergenerational mentoring relationship is strengthened as the matched pair grows to know one another through activities such as sports, hobbies, arts and crafts, faith activities, fitness, community service, the arts, and college and/or career exploration. This program strives to build self-esteem, character, and confidence in the children who participate. The matches meet twice per month.
