Oklahoma Children’s Theatre is proud to support families with children learning in through a homeschool or virtual learning program.
With many children learning without the normalcy of a school environment, we have created several exciting options to help further your child’s education, creativity, self-expression, and learning opportunities. We’re excited to introduce two new options, which all meet weekly.
Health and Safety Notice
We take your child's well-being seriously and have implemented measures to minimize the risk of illness, including reduced class sizes, adjusted curriculums, social distancing, wearing masks, and more. See our parent pack below for full details.
OCT Learning Center

Oklahoma Children’s Theatre is excited to welcome homeschool and students learning from a virtual curriculum to the OCT learning center: The OCT learning center provides an in-person learning environment where students can attend each week with our staff on hand to help foster and encourage your child’s learning progress. In between your child's regular classwork, OCT staff will lead engaging creative workshops that follow Oklahoma educational standards.
