DUO Week was started in 2019 as a part of a bible class project by three sophomores. They saw the success of Swine Week at Edmond Memorial and Balto Week at Edmond North, and wanted to begin a similar week that would positively impact student culture at OCA. DUO Week planned food nights, fundraisers, dress up days, get out of uniform days, and many more events for the recipient in 2019, Peppers Ranch. Peppers Ranch is a foster care community in Guthrie, OK that aims to provide a community for children and parents dealing with the foster care system. DUO Week's goal for the first year was $15,000, and through various efforts and the passionate generosity of the students and families at OCA, DUO Week raised over $25,000 dollars all for the children at Peppers Ranch. During our final assembly, we were informed that an anonymous donor had matched our amount taking the total up to a little over $50,000! We were so blown away by the impact our students had made considering the size of our school, and it being our first year.
