We Are One

  • After years of discussion, Orangeburg County’s three school districts became the single Orangeburg County School District in 2019. What was Orangeburg School District 3, District 4, and District 5, merged and officially became ONE on July 1, 2019.

    Now is the time that so many in our community have worked tirelessly to make happen. Working together as a productive team, our administration, board, and staff are in the right position to offer world-class education and opportunities for every student—no matter where they live in the county.

Our Mission

  • Orangeburg County School District, through the use of innovative ideas and practices, will prepare our students to become productive members of society.

Our Vision

  • Orangeburg County School District, a district of innovation, is committed to maximizing the potential of every student to compete worldwide. 


    No longer competing for resources or opportunities, one consolidated Orangeburg County school district means better opportunities and equal access for all. Our School Board and Administration are 100% committed to a unified district where everyone benefits and has the chance to succeed.



    Our spirit of collaboration is strong, and we are dedicated to giving our students the best education possible—from the youngest primary school student to the young adults who are ready to begin their careers or college experiences.



    Our administrators, employees, and staff work together as one unified team to bring the best opportunities and education to OCSD students. We are better together as we collaborate to accomplish goals to help our students be the best they can be—both as valuable members of society and in their educational lives and careers.
