Our desire is to produce graduates that have acquired a wide range of information from broadly based fields of study. It is our hope that our students develop good character and a strong sense of responsibility to others. We hope that our students recognize and use their God-given gifts and talents and become all that God intended them to be. We base the teaching/learning process on the following principles:
Our goal is to optimize the quality of scholarship through differentiated learning experiences that take into consideration each student’s abilities, interests, learning styles and preferred styles of expression. Through an atmosphere of excellence and creativity, we provide challenging and appropriate educational opportunities for all students, encouraging each to reach their full potential academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally.
Every student learns and retains information in unique ways. An integral part of a student’s experience at Oakville Christian School is the journey towards understanding oneself as a problem-solver and a critical thinker. We at OCS feel that differences need to be celebrated.
The Learning Strategies Centre at OCS is dedicated to coming alongside students, teachers and parents for the purpose of gaining an understanding of individual student learning and mapping out steps toward success.
Learning Strategies assistance may include the teaching of time management and organizational strategies, accommodations to regular programming, the use of assistive technology, and one-on-one or small-group sessions. As a result, students with learning differences are equipped to recover needed skills and motivated to work towards greater independence.
Students who demonstrate consistent mastery of subject areas or concepts are afforded the opportunity to enrich their learning through our Compacted Education program. For a further understanding of our program feel free to contact Allison Simao our Learning Strategies Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
