C of O Prepares to Open College-Prep 'Lab School' in August

School for 9th through 12th graders will model many of the same principles as C of O

College of the Ozarks near Branson is behind a new, college-prep ‘lab school’ for 9th through 12th graders that will begin holding classes in August. KSMU’s Jennifer Davidson has details.

The lab school is called the “School of the Ozarks,” and it operates under the umbrella of C of O. It’s still under construction, but it’s already admitted 25 freshmen, 19 sophomores, 19 junior and six seniors for its fall semester.  According to a press release from C of O, students will learn from a Christian-based curriculum created by the college’s faculty and administrators.

It’s a zero-tuition school, which means students won’t pay fees for classes, but they will need to buy their books and athletics uniforms. When they come to school, the students will also have to do chores, like cleaning their classrooms and the lunchroom. The lab school will have cross country, volleyball, basketball, and track teams.

Teachers and staff plan to set up their classrooms in the new building later this month. According to C of O, the college-prep lab school will be formally dedicated November 8.
