The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will welcome Brenda Corley, Principal of Oceanside Collegiate Academy (OCA), as our guest speaker Tuesday, October 25, 2016. Brenda Corley was named as the first principal for OCA on February 4, 2016.
Brenda has served as a school administrator and lived in the Mount Pleasant community since 2011, when she was hired by Lucy Beckham to work at Wando High School. Along with a strong background in education, including experiences as a teacher, school counselor, director of counseling and assistant principal, Brenda’s vision and leadership skills will be an organic fit with OCA’s vision and mission.
OCA has acquired sponsorship from SC Public Charter School District to establish a dual enrollment public charter high school (grades 9-12) in Mt. Pleasant with an academic, athletic and guidance program that will help interested students be college-eligible when they graduate with college credit, up to 60 hours transferable credit. It’s mission is to serve high school students in a safe, small setting who seek the opportunity and challenge of a rigorous curriculum, high academic standards, and outstanding athletics while earning up to two years of college credit while in high school.
