Application Process

Application Process
 
1. Complete an application packet for each student.
 
 
2. Supply copies of the following academic records.
 
  • current or latest final report card (per child in grades K-12)
  • Recent standardized test scores (per child in grades 1-12)
  • ACT Test scores (per student in grades 9-12, if applicable)
 
3. Provide copies of the following vital records for each student:
 
  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card
  • Immunization Record (up-to-date)
 
4. Schedule Entrance Test and pay $10 Testing Fee (per child in grades 3-12).
 
This test covers English and mathematics. The fee is payable the day of the test, non-refundable, and not applicable toward registration fees or tuition. 
 
Entrance testing is an important tool used in the admissions process. As the typical OCS student is above-average in intelligence and performance, this vehicle is used to determine each applicant's potential for success. The OCS staff administers all tests, designed to measure academic ability and current skills levels. The results are used as part of each applicant's profile in determining admissibility.
 
5. Schedule an admissions interview with an administrator.
 
A necessary step before admission is considered, the admissions interview takes place after all required documentation is received.
 
6. Provide $350 per-family registration fee.
 
This fee is non-refundable.
Next Steps
 
1. Admissions Decision
 
After all documents have been received, the placement test taken, and the principal visit completed, the Admissions Committee reviews all documents and information and makes an admissions decision. The student is notified of the admissions decision by mail.
 
2. New Student Scheduling
 
Once the application and registration processes are completed, including the payment of fees and tuition and entrance testing, and transcripts from previous school are received, the student is scheduled into classes.
 
3. Probationary Period
 
All new students will be accepted on behavioral and academic probation for a period of one calendar year. During this period, conduct and scholarship will be monitored closely. Continued enrollment is dependent upon acceptable levels of attendance, behavior, psychological maturity and academic achievement.
