Post-secondary advising

The greatest thing is to be found at one's post as a child of God, living each day as though it were our last, but planning as though our world might last a hundred years.

The Academy is not only a college-preparatory school; we are also a Kingdom-preparatory school. To assist students and parents, we provide testing information, college and university admission resources, and transcript guidance for students to pursue the prayerfully considered direction of their choice after The Academy. This may include, but is not limited to: apprenticeships, college or university study, licensing or certification for a trade or skill, a gap year to travel or work as a missionary or volunteer, active duty military service, or direct to the workforce.


Students and Families are encouraged to contact The Academy's Post-Secondary Advisor, Dr. Mark Johnson. To contact Dr. Johnson send an email to: Post.Sec.Advisor@theacademyok.org.  Or leave a voice mail message at (405) 834-4091.

The Academy is not a testing site. Therefore, parents and students will need to log on, create an account, register and determine a testing site independently.

The Post-Secondary Advisor will assist students and parents in this process, and in coordinationg locations and student travel to testing sites.
