WELCOME TO OCA
Orchard Collegiate Academy (OCA) is a supportive, high-quality community school with a focus on college and career readiness. At OCA our mission is to educate the whole child, exposing them to a diverse array of academic and extracurricular opportunities including music and arts classes, leadership opportunities, AP classes and more. As a small school, students and staff are able to form strong relationships which augments learning both inside and outside of the classrooms. Our school partners with the Henry Street Settlement to provide additional college preparation, arts programming, social-emotional support, and resources and referrals for the entire family. Students benefit from a full-time college counselor who provides 1-on-1 college counseling and college trips to all students. Our partnership with the Abrons Arts Center allows students to participate in world-class performing arts programming, including drama, music, and dance.
