Academics

ACADEMIC STANDARDS

The OSCS academic program is designed for average and above average students. Please understand that provisions are not presently available for emotionally or mentally handicapped children or children with intense learning disabilities.

OSCS only uses textbooks and curriculum that support academic excellence. The majority of our curriculum used is from highly reputable, distinctively Christian publishers, A Beka Book and Bob Jones University Press.

We use a traditional letter grading system on a ten-point scale. A passing score is 70 or above.

ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Students’ progress is evaluated regularly through tests and quizzes. We evaluate the cumulative academic and behavioral progress for each student every nine weeks, at which time a report card is published. Additionally, every student is evaluated annually in a nationwide testing program using the Stanford Achievement Test. This achievement test analyzes both general knowledge and cognitive abilities.

BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” -Proverbs 1:7

Biblical philosophy is integrated into every area of instruction. From physical education to mathematics, students are encouraged to analyze information, themselves, and the world around them through the filter of God’s Word. They are taught how biblical truth relates to the subject at hand, and how that subject can be a tool in an arena of Christian service.

The most important subject taught at OSCS is Bible. All students attend a daily Bible class and a weekly chapel service. The doctrine and theology taught in class and chapel is that of Old Suwanee Baptist Church. You can find a synopsis of OSBC’s statement of faith here.

DUAL ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITY

Students entering eleventh or twelfth grade may be eligible to participate in our dual enrollment program. This is an opportunity to earn both high school and college credit for a class via the completion of one distance learning course. These courses are offered through Truett-McConnell University. There is currently no additional cost for eligible students to take advantage of OSCS’s dual enrollment program. To learn more about the program, what courses are currently offered, and if your student qualifies, please contact our school office.
