Beloved Traditions

The Father Daughter Dance

The spring Father Daughter Dance is an opportunity for fathers (or father-figures) and daughters in all grades to create memories! Dinner, dance and desserts, as well as the presentation of the senior girls escorted by their dads, makes this a special night.

College Decision Tailgate

On National College Decision Day, the college counseling department hosts the College Decision Day Tailgate BBQ in the senior parking lot. Seniors decorate their cars, and proudly wear the colors and spirit wear of the colleges and universities they will be attending.

Homecoming Spirit Week

Homecoming Spirit Week is one of the most exciting weeks on campus! Color Day, Theme Day, Twin Day, Dancing with the Stars, Oldies and Babies, Powder Puff, the Pep Rally, and the Senior Guy Dance all lead up to the specatular Homecoming Game with the crowning of the royal court and the amazing class floats!

Bridge Crossing

As they prepare to graduate, eighth-graders cross the bridge separating the middle school and high school campuses, symbolizing their transition as incoming freshmen. In front of them, they are greeted by their soon-to-be high school faculty and staff. Behind them, they are cheered on by their departing middle school team.

Harvest Festival

The fall harvest festival at the end of October is always a hit with our fourth and fifth-graders as they don their costumes for a day of pumpkin crafts, sack cloth races, competitions, games and activities, and sweet treats!


Seniors celebrate prom night at a unique venue and spend a special evening together as a class shortly before graduation. The dance is organized by OCS senior parents working in conjunction with the office of student life.

Veterans' Day Celebration

Our annual schoolwide Veterans' Day celebration pays respect and tribute to the men and women who have defended our freedoms. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet real life heroes in person and to deepen their understanding of commitment, sacrifice and honor.


Senior males vie for the title of Mr. OCHS in the spring during the annual charity pageant that raises funds for local non-profits. Contestants share their talents and their bios with judges and the audience in a bid to for the royal crown. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the charity selected that year. 

The Family Fair

The family fair kicks off the school year during the first week of school. Students and families enjoy food trucks, the chili cook-off competition, the cake walk, and bouncy houses. The evening ends with the traditional prayer circle, asking God's blessing on the new school year.

Grandparents' Day

Our beloved Grandparents' Day brings together the generations for a special day of classroom visits, arts presentations and lunch together. We welcome over 800 grandparents to our campus to spend the day with their grandchild(ren) and getting a taste of the OCS life!

National GeoBee

The middle school participates annually in the National Geographic Bee, giving students a chance to display their knowledge of geography and history. Several rounds of play lead up to the final round with judges scoring the first, second and third place winners.

Christmas Spirit Week

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas as students don their ugly sweaters, red and green attire, PJs, and Southern California Christmas garb to celebrate Christmas Spirit Week. To participate, students bring new unwrapped toys that are given to children for Christmas in the Conejo Valley. 

Senior Lounge

The monthly senior lounges are organized by OCS senior moms for twelfth-graders, either indoors or outdoors. Past themes have been March Madness, Carnival, Friendsgiving, Christmas Elf, Winter Wonderland, Valentines, and others!
