We’re looking forward to assisting you with the education of your child(ren). As we do this, we are guided by our philosophy of education. So that we can continue working together effectively, I want to review that philosophy with you:
The purpose of Christian education is equipping students to walk with God and impact the world for Him.
Parents are responsible for their children’s education. Okinawa Christian School International partners with parents by providing Christian education.
Students are God’s image bearers scarred by sin, can learn, and are responsible for their learning. We value student diversity seen in learning styles, abilities, and cultural backgrounds.
Staff (the living curriculum) are Christians who model Biblical thinking and living, build Christ-centered community, focus on OCSI’s mission, empower others, use best practice, and grow professionally.
Our program addresses the whole person, is communicated in English, and uses an American-style approach. It is Biblically based, recognizes all truth is God’s truth, emphasizes sharing the Gospel and discipleship, and encourages Biblical thinking and living.

Over 75 summer school students are learning about God, His world, and their place in it. Students have devotions, concentrate on English and math, eat lunch, and participate in 4 specials: outdoor games, art, computer, and music.
Preparations have begun for next year, including processing new textbooks for health, social studies, Bible, and English.
OCSI has made progress on preparing for its accreditation visit in spring 2018.
Please continue to pray for OCSI:
Ask God to provide the resources OCSI needs to equip students to walk with God and impact the world for Him.
Ask God to use OCSI to share the good news of Jesus.
Pray that the board, staff, students, and their families will grow in their commitment to the Lord.
Praise God for student diversity seen in learning styles, abilities, and cultural backgrounds.
