In a world today where morals are lowered, ethics are questioned, and christianity is attacked, it is good to have a school where a child is given all that they need to be competitive in todays enviroment, along with a biblical foundation each school day. My children have attended OCA for numerous years. My oldest child recently graduated and recieved numerous offers from colleges in and outside of our state. When tested against the national averages, OCA students beat the average. My children have excelled academically and have enjoyed the learning experience of teammanship while participating on the many sports teams OCA offers. I am grateful for OCA, my children have a solid foundation because of our choice to attend.

Orangeburg Christian Academy has positioned itself to become one of the most surprising educational success stories within its area. With the constant relevance for high christian standards, excellent learning environments and their recent facility upgrades, OCA has a very promising and bright future. Admissions are very reasonable and students find a very inviting and enjoyable learning and social atmosphere. This maybe the Cinderella at the ball for parents looking for a more structural and stable student environment and educational experience that is becoming more uncommon in today's schools and communities.

I have granddaughters in 2nd 6th grades. They love the school, teachers and we are happy with all the above also. Can't leave out the SUPER PRINCIPAL. God blessyou all.

My son has enjoyed his time at OCA in class and on the Baseball team. The team has enjoyed great success, and the environment of Christian sportsmanship. As parents we are appreciative of the 'family' Christian environment. OCA is teaching patriotism, and Christian character which molds the kinds of future adults we need more of in these Depressed times. We parents are responsible for preparing our children for the classroom showing listening skills and respect to the teachers. We also see that our children follow through with their academic work given by the teachers. We recommend OCA to parents who want their kids in a safe, patriotic, Christian environment.

My son has enjoyed attending and learning at OCA for the past 3 years, however this year the school has grown tremendously in its enrollment, which is a definite minus in my book. Smaller class size was one of the standouts as to why I chose this school for my son. Some of the teachers are wonderful and really motivated to Christian principles, while others need to be re-evaluated.

OCA is a wonder school. My children have been enrolled there since 2003. They are above average when compared to public school. OCA is like a big family, I can't think of sending my children else where.

OCA is a very nice small private school which has made tremendous strides in the last 12 months- moved to a new building, upgraded teaching staff, gain firm accreditation, and more organized effort to teach students and put teachers where they need to be to succeed

This school is sub-par when it comes to education. It is a very good Christian school, but cannot compete with the academic level compared to public schools or bigger private schools.

I love this school. Otherwise I never would have chosen it for my children 5 years in a row. Like everyplace else you have ups and downs, but my kids have never in an environment where they are truly treated as if they were each staff members own. They love going to school, and that makes me happy. They get three educations in one. 1.) An overall education. 2.) A Christian education, and 3.) A character education. I have other family members and friends whom kids go to other schools, and there's a difference. At O.C.A. every kid is known by every staff member, and every parent is known, by everyone, it's like one big extended family.
