A Word about Learning Differences
Because Ouachita Christian School is a college preparatory school with extremely high academic standards, it is very difficult for students who have learning challenges to function well academically at OCS. We realize that the name “Christian” does not imply or necessitate that we become all things to all people any more than a doctor who specializes in one type of surgery is expected to perform surgery for which he/she has not been trained.
Therefore, it is our goal as a Christian school to assist every student who qualifies for admission. In order to do this with children who have mild learning disabilities, we offer a tutoring program call SOAR. This program does not modify; rather, it accommodates the regular curriculum. For students with severe learning challenges, our counseling staff will be glad to assist you with placement suggestions.
Any exception to admissions policies may be made by the appropriate admissions committee after a prayerful and thorough review of any mitigating circumstances.
OCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin
regarding policies, educational offerings, financial aid programs,
athletic programs, and other school-sponsored activities.
