How Oakville Christian School (OCS) sees itself
"Nurturing excellence in a Christ-centred academic environment is the key to education at Oakville Christian School. The Christian principles of the school reflect a strong belief in the value of each child. OCS seeks to develop the mind, body and spirit of each student within the context of a caring, safe community environment. In a world that expects you to fit in, we teach our students to stand out!"
"At OCS, our aim is to help students – accomplish the following:
-Develop Biblical values that will guide them in their decision making,-in the present and in years to come.
-Respect other students and teachers (all people) as persons of value, made in the image of Christ.
-Recognize others in their lives as instruments of God (Proverbs 27:17) to ‘sharpen’ their lives with a goal to journey through life interdependently.
-Become lifelong lovers of learning developing healthy work habits."
"Our student body’s size lends itself to a ‘family’ atmosphere, where all teachers and administrative staff know students by name. Many groups contribute this OCS culture of community, with a common goal of learning, growing together, and having mutual respect for one another. We believe a healthy, trusting home/school relationship enhances, and even speeds, a child’s growth."
"At Oakville Christian School, we believe that school is more than just academics. We offer a variety of programs to our students, promoting growth academically, physically, spiritually, and socially. We know that each child is unique in their abilities and talents, and we strive to offer programs that appeal to all aptitudes. We provide numerous clubs, extracurricular activities, competitive and non-competitive athletics, service, and student council opportunities."
"At Oakville Christian School, our common goal is to help our students continue on their academic paths to success while being lovingly nurtured in a Christ-Centered Academic Environment."
