Ouachita Hills College exists to provide a Christ-centered, character-oriented education which equips students to be successful in their chosen profession and to be active soul winners.


The vision of Ouachita Hills College is to demonstrate the power of implementing God’s counsel for the Seventh-day Adventist church in the field of educational endeavor by providing an environment that fosters the well-rounded development described in those counsels. In addition to being aptly prepared for their chosen profession, our students are enabled to cultivate habits of deep Bible study, practical work, and compassionate witnessing.
