Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy upon which Ocean View Christian Academy has been established, and upon
which it operates, teaches that God has placed full responsibility for the education and training of
a child upon the parents. The parents may choose to partner with the school or church, to
supplement the training and instruction given by the parents in the home.
This philosophy demands that there be close communication and agreement between the home
and the school. If OVCA is to be an extension of the home, there must be agreement between
the two as to educational objectives, methods of achieving those objectives, obligation of each
party, and the need for unity and harmony between home and school.

the satisfaction of families seeking admission to the school. No parent, grandparent, or guardian
should seek admission to Ocean View Christian Academy for a student until they are satisfied

are in complete accord with the objectives, methods, and obligations which accompany such
