Procedures for Financial Plan
In order to prepare a financial plan for this coming school year we are requesting all parents/ guardians (including returning students) complete a Financial Information form. Information requested includes whether or not you are requesting financial aid, applying for the matching scholarship, paying in full, or if you have any other scholarship to apply to the financial plan. We hope this form will streamline the process to get the financial plans ready for the next year.

Science Equipment Donation
Generous donations have enabled Ozark's science department to be updated and enhanced. Thanks to generous supporters of Christian education, we have been able to purchase new digital sensors, equipment and supplies to completely upgrade our science department. Our Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Anatomy & Physiology classes will all be able to greatly benefit from these purchases.
