Family Service Hour Program

 Family Service Hour Form

Parental involvement and support of Oakland Christian is a very important aspect of our school.  Each family at OCS is required to participate in the Family Service Hour Program.  Families in K – 12th grade must complete 20* family service hours per school year. Families in the Early Education Center must complete 10* family service hours per school year. For each school year, the service hour program  begins on May 1 and ends on April 30.  A $20 fee will be charged for every hour not completed in each section of the program.
*Note:  There is no longer a separate continuing education requirement.

**For food and beverage donations, 1 service hour will be awarded for every $20 of items donated.  You may also count the time it took you to prepare the food.  Please turn in your receipts with your service hour form.


Hear From Our Parents, Teachers, and Alumni

This is my 13th year at OCS, and I believe we have the BEST parent and administration support of any school in Michigan.  You just can feel the love here, and I love teaching at OCS!
- Mr. Kreger, MS History Teacher
The teachers truly love and care for each individual student.  They long for them to succeed in life – fully rooted in their faith, walking in freedom and the Lord’s calling.  The teachers are servants with their eyes fixed on Jesus, and an amazing gift of teaching
- The Erickson Family
From the day we toured OCS, my husband and I have felt this is the place for our children.  Every year, God has provided for us to continue to send our children here.  I am so thankful He has allowed us to have our children in a place that not only puts education on such a high level, but incorporates God, His work and His love, into every aspect of that education!  What a blessing OCS is, and will continue to be, for our family!
- The Johnson Family
Our first impression of Oakland Christian School was the family environment.  We are truly blessed with an environment where everyone, including faculty, staff, and fellow students are concerned for each other. It is this caring environment and the ability to freely and compassionately communicate with teachers and staff that has made Oakland Christian the right school for our family.
