Helping students help themselves since 2004

Our Mission

At OIC- CADI, we inspire and challenge the over-age, under-credited, population of Philadelphia to gain 21st century and valuable life skills to graduate with a foundation to thrive in today’s global society.

Our Vision

Our vision is for every student, regardless of socio-economic status and a myriad of other environmental factors, to graduate high school with a diploma.

Our Core Values

All students should experience Success. We believe success begins with the first milestone of a high school diploma.

High-quality instruction is the bedrock for Achievement. We believe in academic achievement in the classroom.

Our learning community has a shared responsibility of Respect. We believe in mutual respect and building trusting relationships between students, parents/guardians, families, and staff.

Our community exhibits Personal Responsibility. We believe personal responsibility is the bedrock of core values.

Program Design/Model

Our school is primarily teacher-based with certified instructors who teach engaging courses in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Spanish, and Art. When deemed necessary, some credit-bearing courses are computer-based.

In order to graduate, each student must acquire the School District of Philadelphia’s designed 23.5 credits, complete a senior capstone course, and complete one of the 5 Act 158 pathways. Additional partnerships and particular courses offer opportunities for students to earn industry certificates and paid internships.

Our counselors also provide additional programming and individual student support services to ensure post-secondary success.
