History

Orange Crescent School (OCS) was founded in 1983 by the Islamic Society of Orange County (ISOC).  The concerned and hardworking pioneers of OCS had a vision of providing a balanced academic program with an emphasis on comprehensive Islamic Studies.  It exists as a non-profit, private academic institution serving Orange County’s diverse Muslim community with solid Islamic education from toddler care to eighth grade.

Today we are one of the largest Islamic Schools in Orange County representing more than 20 nationalities.  We are proud to be one of only a few Islamic Schools with the stamp of accreditation from WASC.  The importance of this accreditation is vital to the integrity of OCS as it validates the programs we offer and provides students a viable educational source. We partner with many state and federal institutions to help provide access to important educational resources to parents, students and teachers.
