Please accept our invitation to visit our OCS campuses. Contact me by email or at (407)-339-0223 to schedule a tour. We are eager to meet you and welcome the opportunity to walk through our admissions process together. Come see for yourself what thousands of other families and students have already received—the Orangewood Blessing!


Admission Requirements

One parent must be a professing follower of Jesus Christ. If one parent is not a professing follower of Christ, he or she understands, accepts, and supports the school's Christian philosophy of education and will participate whenever possible.

One parent is an active member and weekly church attendee of a local Christian church which teaches and subscribes to the following:

  • God is a Triune God – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • The Bible is God’s infallible and authoritative Word to man. It is the standard by which faith and practice are to be measured.
  • The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
  • Man is created in the image of God. Through his relationship to Adam, man is a sinner by nature and, thus, is alienated from God.
  • Jesus Christ is the only Savior of sinners, the only way to the Father. He died as a substitute for sinners, and was raised from the dead so that they might be reconciled to God.
  • Eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
  • Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds.

Affirm a commitment to a biblical view of parenting.

Affirm ultimate responsibility to educate our children.

Affirm a commitment to the educational philosophy of OCS.

Affirm a commitment to a biblical communication following Matthew 18 principles for solving conflicts and refraining from gossip.
