Oku is an approved vendor to many independent charter schools serving the Orange County area. By enrolling your child as a student with an independent charter school, you will receive instructional funds that can be applied to offset the cost of classes at Oku. The charter schools provide each student with an assigned Teacher Facilitator (TF)/Educational Specialist (ES) to ensure that your child is meeting the state-defined requirements for each grade level. Once assigned to a TF/ES, let him/her know that you're interested in having your child take classes at Oku. The TF/ES will then work with Oku to apply the instructional funds to your balance. Any remaining balance, after instructional funds have been applied, is an out-of-pocket expense that you're required to either pay in full or via prorated monthly payments.
