Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We apply the belief that a Christian education is of utmost importance in raising up the next generation of Christian men and women. Thus, education at OCS encompasses strong academics, a focus on the beauty and significance of Creation, the regular use and application of technology, and, above all, a thorough and deep understanding of God’s Word. In this way, our children will best be prepared to stand strong in their callings in life - wherever these may lead.
