One of the highest achievements in high school basketball, the McDonald’s All American Games are the only democratically selected prep all-star event in the country. The nation’s top high school basketball coaches and media comprise the selection committee responsible for selecting the boys and girls rosters from a pool of more than 700 nominated high school seniors.
This year marks the 41st annual McDonald’s All American® Boys Game and the 17th annual Girls Game. The 2018 McDonald’s All American Games will be held Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Both the Boys and Girls Game will air on ESPN networks.
Today the entire student body had the pleasure to celebrate with Nassir as he was officially presented with his jersey for the upcoming game. To see Nassir play live follow @ocphoops and @ocpathletics to keep up with the season schedule.

Orlando Christian Prep Art Department
The OCP Art department lead by Mrs. Castro took a group of art students to the Winter Park Sidewalk Chalk Art festival this past weekend. The students worked on their chalk art from 7:30am to 3:00pm on Saturday. This annual event gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents in the art community. We are very proud of our students who represented our school. If you are interested in making a contribution to further expand our art department please contact Mrs. Castro
Greetings from Guidance,
As we enter autumn, our thoughts turn to fall festivals, multi-colored leaves, and yes - - college football. For our senior class, this goes one step further - - college admissions. We have been working on narrowing the college choices down to a select few. Part of this process involves applying for college, taking the ACT or SAT again, filling out that pesky FAFSA, and delving into the world of scholarships.
OCP will have campus visits from Kings College, Southeastern University, Liberty University, Johnson University, Montreat College, Trinity, and more to be added soon. The National College Fair is coming to Orlando October 15th. Go online to check out the universities that will be in attendance. National College Fairs
Seniors should be working on Khan Academy to prepare for the upcoming admissions exams. Juniors should use this program to help them prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT, which is scheduled on October 11. Juniors will also be planning to take the SAT in May or June and the ACT in April or June.
