SUBJECT: REMINDER--TOWN HALL MEETING ON LAB SCHOOL APRIL 16-- $0 TUITION, APPLICATIONS, SPORTS OFFERINGS, TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES DISCUSSED
Administrators of School of the Ozarks, a college preparatory lab school of College of the Ozarks, will present information about the School’s mission and vision, curriculum, sports offerings, activities, cost, and much more at a Town Hall meeting scheduled for April 16 at 7 p.m. in the Royal Oak Forum of The Keeter Center. All interested families and community members are encouraged to attend.
“College of the Ozarks, a four-year Christian work college, has operated with a work for education philosophy since its founding in 1906. “School of the Ozarks will closely mirror the College’s mission and vision,” said C of O President Jerry C. Davis. “It will offer deserving youth a chance for a quality, Christian secondary education without the burden of tuition cost. Instead, it will require them to invest a little sweat equity into their education.”
Dean of Character Education Dr. Sue Head (who has overseen the planning of the lab school), along with the School’s Headmaster Mr. Brad Dolloff, will provide an overview of the School’s mission and vision, its integrated college preparatory curriculum and activities, and information pertaining to policies, uniforms, and applications.
Additionally, the meeting will provide information on extracurricular offerings, such as sports teams and special programming to cultivate patriotism.
“We are eager to share what S of O will offer academically, what programs and sports will be available to students—what families can expect,” said Dr. Head. “The town hall meeting will address the different facets of the new school.”
A question and answer session will conclude the meeting. Following the meeting, parents will have the opportunity to pick up an application form and enjoy a reception.
