Academic Program Features

Counseling

All students meet weekly with a certified counselor who provides group counseling services to improve social, academic, and emotional support for student success. Individual counseling and topic-based counseling is also available.

Art

All students meet weekly with a certified art teacher to engage in hands-on art projects. Research suggests that art teaches students the creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills needed to succeed in the 21st century.

Life Skills

All students meet weekly in a class devoted to life skills. Students are assessed for life skills on the Casey Life Skills inventory and instruction is tailored to the needs of the students in the areas of permanency, daily living, self care, relationships, communication, housing, money management, soft work skills, and optimism for the future.

ICAP

All students devote one class period each week to the development and maintenance of their individual career academic plan. ICAP is a student-driven, ongoing process that actively engages students, enabling them to:

  • Understand their own interests, strengths, values, and learning styles

  • Create a vision of their future

  • Develop individual goals as related to a Career Cluster or Career Pathway

  • Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and goals

Character Education

Once each week, students meet with their character education to learn those skills necessary to be kind and responsible citizens. This class supports the district character initiative which encourages the development of character in the areas of responsibility, citizenship, service, courage, gratitude, integrity, kindness, respect, perseverance, and empathy.

Core Education/Curriculum

All students are enrolled in English, Math, Science, and Social studies classes as well as one elective class. Classes are taught by certified teachers and at a level of rigor that meets Oklahoma State standards.

Student-Led Conferences

All students should anticipate at least one student led conference each year they are enrolled at Page Academy. These conferences allow students to demonstrate their learning and progress toward their diploma to their parents. Students should have a good understanding of the graduation requirements and how they plan to meet each of those requirements. Students will present, at a minimum, a copy of their transcript, career assessments, their most recent grade report, and their up-to-date graduation checklist.
