If at any time during the week you have a concern about your student, please do not hesitate to call us at (405) 425-5300 or (405)-425-5304.
Course materials can be found in the information that will be sent to accepted students and in the syllabi. Books can also be ordered through the OC Bookstore at http://www.okchristianstore.com/SelectTermDept.aspx
If your student is allergic to any type of food or medication, please make sure one of the staff at the Honors Academy know beforehand. Our staff works with the U Dining manager very closely to make sure all of our campers dietary needs are met during the week.
Your student will be staying in a dorm facility that is locked with a curfew at night. There will be four counselors living in the dorm and doing room check every night in the facility to make sure all of the students are accounted for and are safe. We also have a residence director living in the dorm if your student cannot find a counselor.
To enhance the campers’ experience, we do not allow checking in and out of camp. Students cannot be checked out for visits, sports events, etc. When registering, please plan on staying for the full session of camp. Students who check out early will not be allowed to return to camp during this session.
Any visitors must be approved by the Honors Office prior to arrival to an event to provide safety your student and a cohesive program.
