We offer a variety of programs to our students, promoting growth academically, physically, spiritually, and socially.
At Oakville Christian School, we believe that school is more than just academics. We offer a variety of programs to our students, promoting growth academically, physically, spiritually, and socially. We know that each child is unique in their abilities and talents, and we strive to offer programs that appeal to all aptitudes. We provide numerous clubs, extracurricular activities, competitive and non-competitive athletics, service, and student council opportunities.
We strive to meet the diverse needs of our families by offering programs in our school that make life less complicated. Our ‘Before and After School Program’ allows working parents to extend their child’s stay at school each day, or on selected days, as families’ schedules dictate. And the hot lunch program provides parents convenient and nutritious food choices.
Our OCS athletic program strives to create an atmosphere of success for all.
We strive to be examples of Christ as we participate in Physical Education classes, during intramurals, and in competitive tournament play. Students are encouraged and motivated by teachers and coaches who work to develop their individual skills and talents, while fostering character skills such as teamwork and sportsmanship.
As part of its curriculum, Oakville Christian School offers a three-year band study, beginning in Grade 6.
Students choose an instrument to study from woodwinds, brass, or percussion. The program encompasses a wide range of repertoire from basic marches to film scores and elementary jazz techniques. Extracurricular instrumental opportunities range from small ensemble work to stage band.
Many performance opportunities are available for all instrumentalists at weekly chapels, outreach programs, or yearly events such as the talent show, appreciation luncheons, or the Christmas and Spring Concerts.
Learning is enriched through art experiences with annual field trips to the Burlington Arts Centre, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, and National Art Gallery of Canada.
Students are exposed to a wide variety of artists and use various media: pencil, conté, pastel, watercolour, acrylics, glass mosaic, block printing, plaster, and paper mâché sculpture.
Grade 8 students each choose an artist to study and then produce works in that artist’s style. They use PowerPoint or Prezi to present the artist to their classmates. Occasionally, students also make presentations to a younger grade and then lead that class in an art activity where the younger students create works similar to the artist.
Students often have the opportunity to help with the creation of sets and props for our drama productions.
At OCS, we are committed to providing a superior extracurricular program for the intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual development of the child.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities like service clusters, student councils, academics, the arts, and athletics. Some of the extracurricular activities that are offered are:
- Athletic teams that compete in nine different sports, starting as early as Grade 3. Sports include basketball, soccer, volleyball, badminton, floor hockey, cross country, track and field, and ultimate frisbee.
- A music program that trains vocal and instrumental groups, representing the school at different community functions. Students may participate in the OCS Singers choir from Grade 2, while every student in Grade 6-8 participates in the OCS Band.
- A Student Council with representatives from Grades 5-8 that participate actively in the school and organize a variety of school-wide events and fundraisers.
- A variety of other interest clubs and activities that run throughout the school year.
