At Ozarks, we encourage students to fully engage in the Ozarks experience.  Learning happens everywhere.  Through involvement and transformative opportunities, we help each student reach their full potential and leave Ozarks prepared to live their lives fully.

Student Handbook

In order to support and uphold a commitment to our mission and core values, community members must be fully informed about common expectations. The Ozarks Student Handbook is intended to provide our students and community with policies and resources to support the student experience.
