The secondary program at OCS, including both middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12), effectively prepares students for success in future educational and vocational pursuits. We engage, challenge, and motivate students to realize a life of purpose that benefits others and is glorifying to God.

In addition to core course work, the high school program features extensive media, visual, and performing arts, S.T.E.M., foreign languages, business and technology, physical fitness, and a variety of biblical studies classes.
