spiritual life

Foundation of faith

OCS puts faith first by emphasizing the Lord and His Word in all aspects of a student’s life. We believe firmly in what Proverbs 1:7 says: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Our foundation is built upon the Lord and the truth found in His Word, and we believe that educational success is a product of that foundation. Teachers are guided by the Holy Spirit to plan lessons that will direct each student into a deeper relationship with Christ. At OCS, faith is evident through our commitment to prayer, through Bible class, and through weekly chapel.


OCS believes in praying for and with our students every single day. Our commitment to prayer comes from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Bible Class

Our goal is to teach students a life-long commitment to studying God’s Word and to make it central to everything they do. Our Bible classes impress on our students the importance of authenticity in their walk with Christ.  As middle schoolers, they build upon their foundation by exploring the beliefs of other worldviews. Discovering where to find the truth and preparing them to impact the world for God's glory.

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.  Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31b-32


Every Wednesday, OCS holds chapel with students, faculty and area pastors and teachers. Each chapel is an opportunity to share a short message from God’s Word, with the goal of providing yet another opportunity for our students to listen for, recognize, and obey God’s Voice. Students participate in cross-grade level chapel groups creating opportunities for leadership and mentorship.

“Speak, for your servant is listening.” (1 Samuel 3:10)

“We chose Ozaukee Christian School because we wanted our children's hearts and minds to be influenced by teachers that will instill our Christian values and beliefs. We don't have to ‘re-train’ our children after spending 40 hours each week at their school due to inconsistent values being taught. Our children now have one consistent and clear biblical worldview taught that aligns between our home, church, and during the school day at OCS!”

opportunity for Service

Opportunities to instill hearts of service in our students are never overlooked. Students learn by example how to serve their peers and their school from holding the door for a classmate or teacher to assisting younger students with their coats or meals at recess and lunch. Middle school students learn the value of servant-leadership as modeled by Christ in Student Leadership Council. Additionally, during our annual Serve Event, students visit assisted living homes and serve breakfast at a homeless shelter. We want every moment during the day to count! We want every activity to point our students to Christ!
