Elementary School (Grades PreK-3 to 6)
OCS offers elementary (PK3 through 4th) and upper-elementary (5th and 6th) grades.
In the OCS Pre-K and Kindergarten programs, classes are divided by age and appropriate developmental stages. A child is required to be 3 years old by September 30th and potty trained for enrollment into the Pre K program. Each class has a limited size (no more than 18), a certified teacher, and a teacher’s aide. The Pre-K and Kindergarten curriculum includes classroom instruction, music (singing), Bible stories, structured physical education classes, and age-appropriate playgrounds.
The elementary school provides a challenging curriculum designed to prepare students for our Middle School program. We offer a traditional scope and sequence focus, and use a variety of curricula, including Accelerated Reading, Accelerated Math, and Abeka materials. In addition to classroom instruction, students have Bible classes, weekly chapel assemblies, structured physical education classroom, and frequent educational class field trips. We have afterschool art and music programs available.
Each year our students take the Aspire standardized testing. It is correlated with the ACT. This enables us to track individual student progress and maintain a national private school comparison.
