Our Mission

Our mission is to develop students who are active in their learning, aware of their interests, and who seek to expand and explore their knowledge through dynamic collaboration with peers and teachers within an academic setting and the larger community.

Our mission is achieved by creating active and engaging classroom environments grounded in a workshop format that allows for student choice within a culture of academic excellence. OCS -South’s nurturing environment provides students with the tools and values they need for their own social emotional Wellbeing and to be socially responsible in a rapidly changing global community. In addition to high academic standards, OCS - South’s nurturing environment provides students with opportunities to take ownership of their learning, which they can transfer to their lives outside the classroom walls.

Our Vision

OCS-South is a nurturing environment where self-directed students develop academic skills and real life knowledge, through exploration, investigation, reflection, and collaboration with other students, teachers, parents and the wider community: a classroom without walls.
