Our Philosophy

We believe that God reveals Himself in the Bible as the Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of all things.  We believe that the Bible is authentic and authoritative.  We believe that true education leads us to know and desire God as the origin and goal of all our countless goods and truths, and we believe that all goods and truths should be pursued, mastered, and enjoyed as God's gifts.  Christian education provides a context within which the desires of our hearts and the pursuits of our minds are integrated into a whole.  Furthermore, Christian education involves moral education and the integration of biblical faith with all of the disciplines in a manner enabling us to view ourselves, all persons, and our world through the eyes of God.  OCS recognizes that all humans are created by God and that each is gifted by God with a unique combination of talents and skills to be used in His service.  The school seeks to employ personnel who have the talents and skills needed to pursue the mission of the school.  Without regard to race, color, national origin, age, handicap, or disability, the school provides equal opportunity in hiring, placement, promotion, termination, compensation, and training to all qualified employees.  This equal opportunity policy applies to both men and women, except for specific roles defined by scripture.
