Although various factors beyond our control have pushed back construction of the Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy (A2OCA), we see this as providential given that the current worldwide situation would have forced us to make significant changes to the school’s operation during the 2020-2021 academic year. Trusting in God’s Providence, we continued to work hard during this time, and we are happy to announce that WE WILL BEGIN INSTRUCTION IN THE FALL OF 2021, God willing!

Here are some of our accomplishments this year:

In the fall of 2019 the A2OCA Board of Directors was chosen. This pan-Orthodox group has been meeting regularly and working through the many, many detailed tasks that need to be undertaken in order to open the school in the fall of 2021. Please remember the board members in your prayers:

- Deacon Vladimir
- Reader Mark
- John
- Demetrios
- Maria
- Natalia
- Irene

The loan for the construction of the school was finalized in the fall of 2020, with construction slated to commence in mid-November 2020 and wrap up by the end of December 2021. We look forward to an Open House in preparation for the 2021 academic year sometime early in 2020.

Our lawyer is in the process of finalizing the bylaws for our school.

Much, much more will be happening very soon. Please join us as we strive to accomplish our goals!
