They really try to promote students completing work in class. Homework is minimal and reasonable. No work is sent home on Wednesday nights or if school events are scheduled on weeknights (PTF meetings, school performances, etc.).
There is a strong emphasis on integrating Christian values throughout the curriculum and applying it in each subject, not just lip service in a religion course. It is modeled by teachers, staff, and students in everyday life.
I am very thankful for the staff, teachers, department heads, school board and headmaster of OCS. They truly care about the students both academically and spiritually. The staff and teachers build relationships with the students that continue well past high school graduation.
