f we work upon marble it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble to dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and love of our fellow men, we engrave on those tablets something which will brighten to all eternity.” —Daniel Webster
Ottawa County Christian Academy began in the fall of 2004. The goal of Ottawa County Christian Academy is to provide area children with a high-quality, low-cost, Christian education in an optimum learning environment.
OCCA offers a full-time educational program for K-12 students.
All teachers at OCCA hold college degrees and are certified to teach by the Ohio Department of Education in a non-chartered, non-taxed school. All staff members have been properly screened and trained in order to provide the best possible education for your child.
OCCA is a private, non-chartered Baptist school. We receive no state funding and are exempt from taxation. OCCA is recognized by the state of Ohio as a Section 08 institution. This means we are a bona-fide school and follow the guidelines stated in the Minimum Standards of the State of Ohio. As a Section 08 school, OCCA meets all state requirements for compulsory school attendance. This status also permits high school students to receive financial aid to take elective courses at a local college or university.
Our school is also a member of the American Association of Christian School and the Buckeye Christian School Association.
OCCA is dedicated to developing your students both in personal faith and academic excellence.
