Education at OCS

Olympia Community School is Thurston County’s oldest independent school. Our children develop confidence through both academic and creative achievement. We believe that when children explore and develop knowledge and skills in a way that is personally relevant to them, they better learn to value their own perceptions, becoming self-directed in learning and in life. We encourage imagination and creative expression and believe it is essential in helping children to reach their full potential.

For 2020/21, Olympia Community School is enrolling for kindergarten through 5th grade. Our two-year kindergarten option serves children aged 4-6. OCS is a regional center for child-centered, progressive elementary education, and an enduring resource for our community.
