In 2021, the California Department of Education released California's Student-Level Growth Model. This model is a way of measuring year-to-year student growth based on their CASPP scores in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. OCASA Schools were designed to maximize individual student growth. While achievement shows us how much a student knows at a given time, growth shows the improvement in student scores from year to year.

The State of California Growth Model shows an aggregate score of 114.0 in ELA and 109.3 in Math for OCASA Charter. A growth score of 100 means that students made 1 year of growth. OCASA student growth clearly demonstrates high performance.

For ELA we have a 10/10 decile score and for Math, we have an 8/10 decile score. All subgroups have strong growth scores (range 93.9 to 124.8) and decile scores that are all 9 or 10.

"Our family can't say enough good things about OCASA.  The staff is incredible and my kids are excited to learn.  They get to learn by doing (not just hearing about or memorizing) and that is what makes it click for them."

"My son has been with OCASA for 2 years. So far we didn't have any issues and he is very happy there. He is always very excited to go back to school after a break or a weekend. I love their program and their amazing teachers. Overall a great school!"

"Our child is confident and thriving. She is learning 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, media literacy, and how to collaborate with her peers. The program has offered her a natural way to link her innate creativity to traditional disciplines like science and math always working towards creative problem-solving."
