“Train up a child in the way they should go: when they are old, they will not depart from it”
— Proverbs 22:6
What a privilege we have at Ottawa Christian Academy to serve the Lord, Jesus Christ by offering a Christian education to the local community in & around Ottawa, IL. When a parent & school work together, as a Christ–centered team, we can accomplish great things that will impact His kingdom here on earth in the life of the child. We believe offering a quality education to children, based upon a Biblical foundation within a Christian environment, is the most rewarding ministry anyone could ever be associated with today.

WHAT THE PARENTS ARE SAYING
It is so refreshing to walk through OCA and hear the teachers praying with the students; or even more, hearing the students pray and sing songs that lift up our Lord, Jesus Christ. Our family had been wanting to come to this school for a few years and we felt so blessed when God opened the door for us to be able to. The teachers and staff here are wonderful ladies [and gentlemen] lead by the Lord! -MCG
If you have a child consider Ottawa Christian Academy where your child will soar in Academics as well as learning about Jesus and will be able to pray in school…. Your child will be Blessed as well as You!!! -SH
Truly a unique atmosphere for both students and staff. Students are learning to succeed not learning to get by. -JB
This school is very good. It has the hardest working teachers/staff. -JR
This school year we made a big change for our family. We took our kids out of public school and enrolled them in Ottawa Christian Academy (near Allen Park). This is the best decision my husband and I have made for our children’s future. -MA
