We are available anywhere in the USA with our 4-12 age group and adult distant learning educational classes.
In the light of the principles laid down by the great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, it is our main goal to maintain the secular, democratic and modern Turkish education system in America.
Do not miss the opportunity to learn Turkish and Turkish culture with our teachers who are adequately equipped to teach Turkish language and culture, secular thinking and modern thinking.
The financial contributions and supports of the Turkish society and Turkish friends constitute the most important resource for our school in order to continue and develop our work.
Orange County Turkish School is an informal educational and cultural school developed by OCTAA as a service to the Turkish-American community in Orange County. The Orange County Turkish School is not intended to replace formal education. The School’s primary goals are;
* To teach Turkish-American children and adults, and any interested community members the Turkish language (at varying levels) emphasizing the whole range of communication skills, speaking, writing, reading and comprehension,
* To familiarize the students with the history of Turkish people and Turkey, its geography and people at a level equivalent to elementary/middle school education in Turkey,
* To teach the basics of Turkish culture, heritage, music, tradition, and customs.
The realization of these objectives depends on the development of a sound curriculum, appointment of qualified teachers, support of the community, and continuous evaluation of the Program by the OCTAA Educational Committee.
The School is intended to teach Turkish as a second language to improve the language skills of children with Turkish ancestry, adults, and interested community members. The Turkish School shall operate based on the educational principles of a democratic, secular, and progressive society as well as the guiding principles of the founder of Turkish Republic: Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and modeled after the schools in Turkey. This School will be open to all OCTAA membership and public. OC Turkish School fosters a Turkish identity for children of ages 4-12 and adults based on the historical, cultural, and ethical experiences of the Turkish people from historical times to today. The School curriculum includes background in Turkish history, geography, culture, government, literature, music, language, theater, and holiday traditions.
