Admissions Process

Our administration, faculty, and staff strive to provide our families with a quality Catholic K-12 education by fostering excellence in discipleship, academics, and extracurricular activities. We are committed to working closely with our families to meet our students’ needs. While the foundation of our school program is our Catholic faith, it is our goal to guide our students as young disciples of Jesus Christ.

Registration Process

NEW STUDENT at OCMS or OCHS – If you are going to be a new student at OCMS or OCHS and you are not coming from a Catholic middle school or a Catholic elementary school, we would like to get to know you better. We will need to schedule an interview with you and your parents/guardians prior to you enrolling.

Contact OCMS (270-683-0480; [email protected]) or OCHS (270-684-3215; [email protected]) to schedule your interview.

After your interview, the school site will notify you if you are accepted. At that point in time, you can begin online registration, applying for tuition assistance, etc.. OCS Central Office employees can help you through each step – contact us at 270-686-8896.
