Our Perspective

How we see Oakville Christian School (OCS)

OCS was founded in 1982 to serve a need principally for a quality school that taught the Ontario curriculum through a Christian lens. Since, the school has built its reputation on precisely that: offering a Christian perspective on the core Ontario curriculum. The school has a strong community feel, a product to some extent of its size, though leadership has given close attention to developing instruction and extra-curriculars, including the development of a strong athletic program. The school continues to reflect its original mandate while also remaining agile, adopting new programs and practices to meet the needs of students in a changing world.

How Oakville Christian School (OCS) sees itself

The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"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!"

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"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."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"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."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"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."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"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."
