Our hope is that every student would grow in their relationship with Christ and be equipped to impact their world for Him. In fact, our staff considers evangelism and discipleship to be their primary call. They are committed to teaching the individual and finding ways to meet the spiritual needs of each child.
Teachers participate in regular worldview training that helps them address the challenges of students in an increasingly post-Christian culture.
As a ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of Oroville, OCS exists to partner with parents and the church to “Train up a child in the way he should go…” (Prov 22:6).
Oroville Christian School teaches from a Biblical worldview and incorporates Biblical truths into the curriculum in all subjects. Students are taught to think critically about cultural issues and to defend their faith, so you can feel confident as they move on to high school, college, and career.
Prayer is a part of the daily rhythm at OCS. We believe it is essential that students can express gratitude to their gracious Creator, and look to Him for their every need.
Weekly chapel services offer students opportunities to connect with God and each other. During these services, students have opportunities to sing praises to God, pray, and learn more about Him through messages from teachers, students, pastors, and various guest presenters.
We want to develop students who have Christ-like character. One way we do this is through our Fruit of the Spirit awards. These awards recognize and celebrate examples of Christian character in students’ lives, such as patience, kindness, and self-control.
Every year, OCS students participate in Operation Christmas Child. Through the program, we prepare and donate shoeboxes full of small gifts to less fortunate children around our community. It’s a great way for students to serve others and tangibly show Christ’s love.
