An Association of ParentsRather than a parochial or private form of ownership, parents and friends of Christian education who are committed to promoting the mission and philosophy of the school own Ontario Christian Schools.
The Association approves the annual budget and tuition schedules, any changes (which are rare) in constitution and by-laws, and the purchase or sale of land on behalf of the school as recommended by the board. The Association elects board members to represent the Association. Interested in joining the Association? Download the application here.

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is composed of twelve persons elected by the Association to govern the school on their behalf. The board sets the vision, policies, and accountability standards for the school. The officers are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Vicar. Normally, the Board meets each month except for July.
Administration, Faculty, and Staff
The administration and staff are essential in carrying out the mission of the school. The board takes care to establish policies requiring all employees to meet the following qualifications: profess Christ as Savior and Lord and maintain a positive Christian testimony, be active in attendance of a local Protestant Christian Church, and enroll eligible children in Ontario Christian Schools in grades kindergarten through twelve. The Academic Administrators and teachers of Bible in grades 7-12 must be active in attendance of church that adheres to the Reformed standards.
Parent and Community Support
As a partnership in a ministry, Ontario Christian is dependent on the family communication with the school. The Association covets your observations and questions to allow the school to serve more effectively.
We solicit your prayers for the school. We suggest you regularly pray for specific groups, such as the student body, faculty, board, administration, support staff, other parents, volunteers, leaders, members of auxiliary organizations, those supporting the school with their contributions, and the churches that support Christian education.
Parents are encouraged to participate in the auxiliary groups or as volunteers. There are many opportunities to serve such as chaperoning field trips, providing special skills in the office, or helping with drama or other special events and programs.
Development, Fundraising, and the Ontario Christian Foundation
Our current families now enjoy the results of past families who have given to the school over many decades. We need to continue this ministry not only to meet our present needs but also to prepare for the future. Your contributions are needed for the school’s annual fund drive and the special capital projects.
