Join us for Run for the Roses Family Dinner & Auction

Ontario Christian welcomes back our family event held March 9th at our high school campus.

What sets our campus apart from other schools, is providing an atmosphere that is in line with our moto “Growing Christian Leaders”. With our Run for the Roses Derby Auction, we asked our teachers and students where they would like to see campus improvements. The bets are in and the race to beautify, enhance security, remodel old bathrooms and accommodate our growing campus with additional shade came out on top! 

This FUNdraiser will be full of FREE activities, a family Italian dinner, showing off our students’ work and love of their school, raffle auction, live auction and much more!
