OCS is a non-denominational, co-educational, Prep to Year 12 Christian school that seeks to help parents to raise and nurture their children, educating them to a high academic standard. All educational programs incorporate a Christian perspective and seek to provide children with a sound biblical understanding.
The Four Key Focus Areas for OCS are:
- Christian education for lifelong discipleship
- Strong academic focus
- Emphasis on creative and performing arts
- Development of sports skills
The school seeks to bring all areas of school life into alignment with Biblical principles, including administration, curriculum, governance and welfare. By developing a faithful approach to education, OCS strives to offer excellent opportunities for academic, physical, spiritual, communal and emotional growth for all students.
“To raise up effective leaders of godly character who will blend academic achievement and biblical truth, to influence society for the glory of God.”
“In partnership with parents, Orange Christian School provides affordable education that brings honour and glory to God. OCS gives each child a Christ-centred education as a complete person created by God in His image:
- Academically –to see the world from God’s view
- Spiritually – to view themselves in relation to God
- Socially – to see others as God sees them.”
Onsite Care – Open Every School Day
Orange Christian School operates an After School Care Centre which is open every school day. The program caters for school children from Prep to Year 8.
Children enrolled in the After School Care Program are cared for by trained staff who mark the roll and provide an afternoon snack.
The Program operates on site at OCS from 3.15pm with children to be collected (signed out by an adult) by 5.30pm. The cost for the program is $15 per day per child.

Discovering the Gift of Music
While students are at school, what a wonderful opportunity we have to allow them to discover God’s amazing gift of Music.
In addition to their regular class music and opportunities to be involved in co- curricular music activities, Music Tuition offers the chance to learn how to become confident on a chosen instrument or in using one’s voice.
Practical PiP Mornings
OCS is founded firmly on the principle that Christian education relies on a dynamic partnership between the family and the school. We believe that the Bible gives parents the responsibility to raise and train their children, and therefore OCS enters into a partner relationship with our community of parents, to assist them in this important task.
To build community you need to have a clear vision, a common purpose, shared values and attitudes and clearly articulated goals. PiP is a program that we believe will assist our school families in growing closer through working on:
1. Common building and development projects;
2. Participation in education sessions to build greater understanding of what this partnership looks like and
3. Spending time together to develop friendships between families, staff and board
In other words it helps develop greater ownership of the school vision and serves as an additional avenue for building relationships.
Practical PiP mornings, held on 4 Saturdays throughout the year, bring the community together. The focus for these times will be to complete a community project, which builds a strong sense of achievement and purpose for all involved.
