OUACHITA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Ouachita Christian School is made up of determined and dedicated students who all share a common love for Christ and his teachings. The Robertson children all attend the Ouachita Christian School, and Missy dedicates several hours a week to volunteer as a music teacher.
What is Ouachita Christian School?
Ouachita Christian School was founded in 1974, allowing children to mix scripture with science, English and other common studies. The school was founded by a small group of dedicated Christians who hoped for a place where their children could learn and still feel comfortable in a Christian environment. To this day, the Ouachita Christian School is the largest Christian school in Louisiana, still founded upon the principles it was originally built on.
Accreditation & Qualifications
Ouachita Christian School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. It is also accredited by the State of Louisiana, TOPS, Louisiana High School Athletic Association and more. All of our teachers are heavily qualified, with bachelor degrees in their specific fields and a full state private school certification. An estimated 1/3 of our staff have gone on to earn Master's degrees in their chosen field. With an average Student to Teacher ratio of 15:1, the children and students can grow to create strong relationships that will prove beneficial for years to come.
Activities & Curriculum
Ouachita Christian School understands that a quality education requires a balanced amount of learning and activities. That's why they provide their students with a vast array of extra-curricular activities, including drama, a nationally recognized art department, band, tennis, golf, cheer-leading, cross-country and more. Students in grade 6 and below also participate in various sports throughout the year through local recreational leagues.
We also offer Bible courses and studies, allowing the students and the teachers to learn more about the faith that carries and unites them. These Christian themed lessons add a deeper perspective and understanding to their learning, education, lives and more. These Bible courses are in conjunction with regular studies, such as English, Math, Science and more.

In 1974 Ouachita Christian School officially opened its doors for the first time. This brought to reality the dream of a small group to educate future leaders through a quality education in a Christian environment. The ideals of this group carry on. OCS has grown to be the largest Christian school in northeast Louisiana, serving families in 7 parishes in Louisiana, as well as 2 counties in southern Arkansas.

All of our teachers have a baccalaureate degree with full state private school certification. One third of our staff has completed master’s degrees in their chosen field. All of our teachers have the necessary hours in Education/Professional Teaching courses. Our Student/Teacher ratio is approximately 15:1; we try not to exceed 20 per classroom.
My parents “Larry & Peggy West” were part of the initial group that started OCS in 1974. I attended OCS from K - 12 grades and Jase & I made the sacrifice for all three of our children to attend OCS as well. It was a priority for us to provide our children with a Christian Education.

Target Student Population
We provide a Christ-centered, college-preparatory curriculum for our students. We are not able to provide services for students who have been expelled, suspended or failed in another school system. We reinforce basic Christian values on campus and off campus behavior for our students. Alcohol, tobacco and controlled substances are not beneficial for a child’s Christian walk and thus, not permitted for OCS students. Failure to comply will result in suspension and/or expulsion.
Students in grades 6 and under participate on various sports teams consisting of OCS Families through local recreational leagues.Activities: Because we believe a well-rounded education goes beyond classroom instruction, extracurricular activities are strongly supported at OCS.
