High School (Grades 9-12)
Ouachita Christian School is a college-preparatory institution. Our students take the Board of Regents and TOPS core program. These emphasize basic disciplines and the liberal arts on the premise that critical thinking and expression are essential to the vitality of our culture. Our goal is to make learning a stimulating experience emphasizing basic disciplines, critical thinking, and artistic expression so that our students will develop the motivation, discipline, and intellectual curiosity necessary to fulfill their potential. We offer AP courses in Calculus, Government and English. We offer Honors selections in Math, Art, English, Fine Arts Survey, Science and Social Studies. We offer the languages of French and Spanish. We offer 12 Dual Enrollment courses with ULM and LA Tech for college credit earned during high school.
Because we believe a well-rounded education goes beyond classroom instruction, extracurricular activities are strongly supported at OCS. Activities include State and regional Literary Rally, ACT prep, a nationally recognized Art department, Band, Football, Basketball, Baseball, Track, Softball, Soccer, Cross-country, Cheerleading, EagleLine, Tennis, Golf, international, national and local chaperoned trips, Job Shadowing, and College Days.
We believe that service to the community is an essential part of our Christian walk. Students work monthly at the NE LA Food Bank and DeSiard St. homeless shelter, and yearly with CASA, the Center for the Children and Families, Samaritan’s Purse, Pennies for Patients, Relay for Life, American Heart Association, Lifeshare Blood Drive, and other organizations.
