Washington County, WI – This month Ozaukee Christian School (OCS) students are getting into their new classroom routines. Four new classrooms filled with students after the latest round of renovations. And the Student Leadership Council welcomed and prayed over new students at the Newcomers’ Lunch.
With all these fresh faces and fresh spaces, we may forget that Christ has been working through OCS for a long time.
We asked OCS parents why they send their children here. Hint: it is not because of the fresh paint.
OCS parents appreciate the sound biblical teachings presented to their children all day every day.
“I love how biblical principles and stories are woven throughout their schoolwork,” said one parent.
Another parent was moved by her son’s love for his school. “He is getting a quality education and biblical training. He’s being prayed for and cared for body, mind and spirit.”
One parent explained she was glad OCS kept her children safe from the “ungodly ideology being taught in so many public schools.” She noted OCS students are not “sheltered,” but are “taught at age-appropriate levels what God’s word says about [sensitive topics] and how we as Christians should respond.”
As another parent put it, “The truth is getting harder to discover in this dark world, but OCS is the bright light shining to give parents hope.”
