Is before and after school care available at Ontario Christian?
Club IMPACT is a before and after-school care ministry that is available exclusively for Ontario Christian students in grades K‐6 who are currently enrolled at the OC Elementary Campus. This program is offered at the hourly rate of $6.75 before school beginning at 6:30 AM and until 6:00 PM after school. Learn more about Club Impact before and after school care.
Why does Ontario Christian assess students?
It has long been recognized that children mature at different rates and ages. Although chronological age is not the best method for determining school readiness, research has shown that children between the ages of five and six are more likely to be successful in a kindergarten program than younger children. At Ontario Christian Elementary School, a child must turn five years old before September 1st. We also utilize a developmental screening instrument that assesses a child’s readiness to participate in a classroom environment.
The developmental screening instrument used at OCES does not measure a child’s intelligence level and cannot predict academic success. Developmental screening does assist us in deciding whether or not a child is developmentally ready to handle the challenges presented to him/her in the classroom environment. The screening tool also assists the kindergarten teachers by providing them with important information about specific strengths and weaknesses.
How much is tuition?
We know that the decision to enroll represents a significant financial commitment for every family and is a considerable investment in your child’s future. Please learn more about affording Ontario Christian and reach our Admissions Department directly by filling out an admission inquiry for detailed information about tuition rates.
Do the students wear uniforms?
Yes, all K-12 students are required to wear uniforms from our current provider, Dennis Uniforms. Preschool students do not wear uniforms and are only required to wear an OC spirit T-shirt on Fridays.
Our family joined Ontario Christian High School this year and were welcomed with open arms by both students and staff. In a world of shifting values and morals, we applaud the OC family of professionals who are giving our children an education founded in strong Christian principles. Spiritually, academically, and athletically we watch with joy as they are each challenged in different ways to meet their God-given potentials. We feel blessed to have found OC!
Christine K. (OC Parent)
“We have been so pleased with the education that our children are receiving from Ontario Christian Schools. They are challenged academically and are growing spiritually as well. The teachers are fantastic, especially at the middle school level. The school is committed to its mission of ‘Growing Christian Leaders.’ We can see it in the growth of our children. We believe having our children at Ontario Christian is worth every penny!”
“Ontario Christian is a place where we do not have to worry about our children’s safety, what they are being taught in their lessons, or who their friends are. Ontario Christian is a place where we know the values are the same as ours at home. Ontario Christian will always be a part of who we are!”
Toia G. (OC Parent)
“My Husband and I love this school. Our daughter started there last year during the summer for Pre-K and is now going to start kindergarten in the fall. The school has been great! They are truly growing Christian leaders. My daughter is far more advanced than most her age. The staff really show they care and are always keeping my family involved. I am excited to be a parent of a child that attends Ontario Christian Schools.”
“The education that OC provides is absolutely outstanding and priceless. The love, support, and instruction my daughter has received at OC are astonishing… I thank God every day that He opened the door here. I literally could thank you over and over again!”
Kristin K. (OC parent)
“Ontario Christian is by far the best Christian school in the area. I’ve noticed that most parents that send their kids here are very involved. The teachers are very approachable and in tune with all parts of the child – from academic to social. OC also offers many “extras” that the kids are involved in like computers, art, music, PE, Spanish, and library. Yes, the school is definitely an investment, but it’s worth it.”
