Academic excellenceOur history has provided this legacy: The founders of Ouachita Christian School, Incorporated, had a vision of a school that would provide a high-quality academic education and a thorough knowledge of Biblical heritage. Today, the goal of the school's administration, faculty, and staff is to guide each student into an awareness of his or her own worth as an individual and an awareness of the worth and individuality of others. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to develop to his or her fullest potential in all areas of learning at a rate suited to individual abilities. We accept students of various racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. This emphasis is reflected in our curriculum and admissions policies.

OCS offers a college preparatory curriculum. 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. To meet this goal we provide faculty members who are not only well prepared in their disciplines but who also appreciate the individual differences of their students.

At OCS, we want our students to grow in understanding of their spiritual nature and their moral responsibilities. We want them to accept accountability for their actions and attitudes, both on campus and in the community. We want them, as loyal citizens of our country, to grow in appreciation of both their rights and their obligations and to acquire the ability and desire to participate constructively in the activities of society. These goals are rooted in our belief that each person is made in the image of God and therefore worthy of dignity and respect.
Take a look at our academic divisions. In each, these values are reflected and promoted. If you'd like more information, reach out to us. We'd be glad to hear from you.
