Welcome to OCS
Founded in 1999, Oglethorpe Charter School was the first start-up charter middle school in the state of Georgia, serving grades six through eight. In 2012, we moved into a state of the art building located at 7202 Central Avenue, Savannah, Georgia. At the close of the 2023-24 school year, we will celebrate our 25th year of partnering with parents and the community to inspire students to achieve personal and academic excellence. We invite you to visit us and learn why it is great to be an OCS Titan!
OCS Mission Statement:
Partnering with parents and community to inspire students
