Coat of Arms

The Oregon City coat-of-arms was adopted in 1967 after considerable research, many meetings and trail sketches. We feel confident that the future generations of Pioneers will pride in our coat-of-arms and all that it represents. On the crest, is a pioneer, which represents the school as a mascot. The mantling surrounding the coat-of-arms is the Oregon grape, and the state flower.  OCHS and the famed waterfalls complete the upper portion. Centered in the lower portion is the coat-of-arms of Dr. John McLoughlin an early pioneer. The elevator is shown directly above the Dr. John McLoughlin coat-of-arms. The atomic symbol, harp, and winged foot all represent the goals in the scholastic and athletic fields. The unique significance in applying the fish and grape in three’s represent the close cooperation of the student body, faculty and community.
