Faith Statement:

I truly appreciate the impact that my seventeen years of Christ-centered schooling has had on my life.  I believe that a school which effectively develops students with godly character can be a powerful tool to change the community and world we live in. I am grateful that God has allowed me to be a part of the OCCS community and to play a part in such life-changing work of His Kingdom.  It is my goal that my students are able to leave my classroom saying with me that "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:14
