WELCOME to OCS, a faith-based school.
“The Christian faith is a reasoning trust, a trust which reckons thoughtfully and confidently upon the trustworthiness of God.” John Stott
Our role as a school is to educate students. OCS is committed to offering a rigorous academic experience. We challenge our students to work hard as they develop knowledge, skills, and critical thinking. This is our professional privilege and responsibility as an academic institution. Scholastic preparation is not our whole story, though. We embrace the opportunity to offer students a Christian education.
What makes OCS a Christian school?
We believe the answer is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Christian school is founded on God’s message of redemption and purpose in His Son. All schools are in the business of teaching facts; at OCS we approach that task by teaching the Bible, the life of Christ, and the story of God at work in the world.
We work with professional educators and parents who value godliness and Christian virtue. We hold that academic pursuits are best forged through character development and that it is Jesus Christ who holds the keys to authentic being.
We believe that prayer, faith, compassion, worship, and personal devotion fit hand in hand with all parts of scholarship. Only God can penetrate the depths of the soul and construct the heart. It is with humility and confidence that we seek to educate not only the mind and the will, but the heart of a student. Thus our mission is partnering with families to educate the whole person.
OCS is a wonderful place for students to receive an excellent education. Our greatest strength is community. By God’s grace there are hundreds of families who enroll their children and support the cause of the Christ-centered education here at OCS. This community of families prays for one another, encourages one another, and helps one another. We hope our website conveys our enthusiasm and faith.
We invite you to come and see OCS first-hand and talk to the parents, students, and faculty who make up our school. Thank you for your interest, and may God bless you.
