Over 95% of OBA graduates go on to higher education; therefore, the academic program is primarily college preparatory. The foundation for academic success is established in middle school classes featuring a curriculum stressing the “basics.” Textbooks are obtained from both Christian and non-Christian publishers.
OBA regularly has one of the highest ACT composite score averages in the state. For the past five years, OBA students’ ACT composite scores have averaged 24.9, with an average of 26.8 in 2020, as compared to the national average of 21.9.

The OBA community meets Monday and Wednesday mornings at 10:05 a.m. for a time of worship, teaching and praise. Area pastors, youth leaders, the OBA faculty and personalities, and the students themselves, are invited to share during this time.
Community service is required for all high school students and encouraged throughout the student body. Mission trips within the United States as well as abroad give students perspective and the opportunity to serve.
