Our Savior Christian Academy’s religious beliefs are sincerely held, reflected in written governing documents, and lived out consistently. They are rooted in Holy Scripture and theologically supported by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
Full Disclosure: OSCA operates in full disclosure of our values and beliefs. As Christians, we know we are sinful by nature. We are redeemed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Our Savior Christian Academy takes faith seriously. If a student operates outside the will of God, and knowingly rejects His commandments, or works to lead others astray, they are at risk for dis-enrollment.
Routine Standard of Practice: Our routine standard of practice for enrollment is located on the OSCA webpage (https://www.oursavioracademy.org/osca/enrollment).
Clarity of Commitment: By the parent / caregiver signing the enrollment form, they agree to, and fully understand, the importance of the school's religious and Christian values and conduct code.

... that God created this world and universe perfectly; but that man through his fall into sin, separated himself from God (Genesis 3:1-24).
... that Jesus, true God and true Man, came into this world; that He suffered, died and rose again from the dead; and by His action, paid for man’s sin (Romans 4:25).

...that we are saved by grace through faith and that good works, while they do not save us, are a witness to our faith (Ephesians 2:8).

...that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image.
