Financial Aid


There are two types of financial aid available.  Both programs are based on financial need and availability. A new application is required each year.  The Financial Need Program is available to students in any grade who have been enrolled for at least one year.  Applicants to the Financial Need Program may receive 10% in tuition aid.  The deadline for applications is May 1st for the following school year.

Minority students in grades 6 – 12 may apply for the Minority Aid Program (MAP).  Eligible applicants may receive 10% - 50% aid, based on the family income level and available funding. Applications for MAP are accepted year-round.  The deadline for re-application for MAP applications is May 1 for the following school year

Ouachita Christian School participates in the Arete Scholars program, a state-funded scholarship program that provides funds for new students to OCS, either students starting in Kindergarten or those who attended public schools in the 2022-23 school year, grades K-12. 
The application for the 2023-24 school year is open February 28-May 1, 2023. Current Arete families are required to reapply each year and should receive an email from Arete with instructions for doing so.
