Admission to Orangeburg Preparatory Schools is competitive. OPS seeks students with good character, diverse interests, and a willingness to work in a challenging environment. A prospective student’s admission is based upon previous academic records, recommendations, an interview, and an entrance examination.


As early as possible, students seeking admission should have an application completed and returned to the school office. Mrs. Monica McElhone, Admissions and Marketing Director, will contact you to schedule an appointment for assessment. Supporting material for that application will be requested at that time. If a student is qualified and a position is available, parents will be offered a contract for the upcoming year. If a grade is fully enrolled, parents will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list.
