Olivet Academy (OAc) in Riverside, CA, exists to train children to be future scholars and leaders for God’s kingdom. We desire to have our children learn in an atmosphere that fosters the love of learning as well as spiritual formation and academic strength based on biblical worldview.
We use well written, engaging literature-based educational model that aims to lead children to a lifelong love of learning. The children’s knowledge is fed through interaction with a wide variety of quality educational materials. The children participate in nature walks, observing and collecting natural things, visits to museums and art galleries, field trips, exposure to quality music and art, journal keeping, drawing, open discussions with teachers and peers, and more. The importance of habit formation, which naturally yields to good character, is stressed and trained.
