About Us » 1:1 Google School

1:1 Google School

Ouachita Christian School was one of the first schools in Louisiana to become a Google School, with a 1:1 use ratio of students to Google Chromebooks. This designation was earned in the 2014-15 school year.


In 2020-21, all students in grades 4-12 are assigned their own Chromebook. Students in PreK-3rd grade have access to Chromebooks in their classrooms.

OCS integrates the use of the Google Suite products---Google Classroom, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and many others--into the teaching and learning process. Three Level 2 Google for Classroom Certified educators provide training for both teachers and students and administer proficiency assessments both annually and as needed. 


Google Classroom is the platform used for each class, providing seamless, daily instruction for students who are in our Online Instruction Program due to a COVID-10 quarantine, or who are ill or absent. 


Additionally, each K-12 classroom is equipped either with a Smart Board or flat panel integrated smart board and hard drive.
