Because his faith has grown...

"I love being here at ODCS. I have been here for 12 years and wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. Here at ODCS the atmosphere is very good; it is a place where everybody knows your name and a place where you can worship Christ. The teachers care not just about my overall well-being but most importantly about my spiritual life. They care about me, my faith and they want me to grow in my faith. Open Door Christian Schools is where students have many opportunities and can do many different activities. ODCS gives you the tools and strategies to serve people and to go and minister to people in their daily life. I have loved my time here and my faith has grown immensely." ODCS Zach Strouse

 

 

Because she has so many opportunities...

 

"My favorite part of my experience at Open Door Christian Schools has been the atmosphere. I have been nurtured and encouraged in my Christian walk as well as encouraged to take part in different sports, clubs and musical ventures.Students also have the unique opportunity of playing multiple sports. I would like others to know that I think ODCS is great school and an amazing opportunity for their child. Students are challenged spiritually everyday whether it is through Chapel, daily Bible classes or Connect. Students are encouraged to work hard in their studies by teachers that really care about them. " ODCS HS Student

 

 

Because of the impact on my life...

"Open Door Christian Schools has impacted my life in many miraculous ways. The fact that I can go to a school where I can worship Christ freely and pray before every class is a wonderful thing. I also love that the teachers have a one on one relationship with the students and strengthen them in their walk with Christ. I have grown in my faith because I'm in an environment of full worship and because of the relationships I have built here. ODCS is not like a typical school. A student at ODCS can be involved in multiple things including sports, drama, choir or band. Each program is excellent in their own way. When I first came to ODCS I was hurt because of the problems in my old school but ODCS opened numerous possibilities for me through academics, drama, band, and choir. I am so thankful for all that ODCS has offered me and I'm very grateful for the way ODCS has helped my relationship with Christ." Marcos, ODCS HS Student

Because of the community of Christians...

"What I love about ODCS is that is it not just a school, it’s a community of Christians. One of the things I am very happy about is that this school cares about our Lord Jesus Christ. We [learn about Jesus] every single day! The teachers really care about helping us learn and grow and it is easier for them because we have smaller classes, therefore the teacher can give more attention to help us individually which makes us better students. Another thing I love is that no matter if you are new or have been here before, the kids and teachers always make you feel welcome. The first day I walked into the school as a new kid, I was very nervous, but this nice girl walked up to me and she started talking to me. We talked more and more and now we are BFFs. I really like the fact that everyone is very polite. This school is like home. I hope high-school does not fly by too fast. I want to stay.

A great thing that I am super happy about is that they have art classes, gym, choir, and band. I am so happy we get all these chances to find our true talent. They also have lots and lots of sports for athletes....You can actually find really cool things to do like drama, film, and art.  I really appreciate this school, and I hope you will consider joining our community." Rebecca, ODCS MS Student

 

Because of the people...

"What I really enjoy about Open Door Christian Schools would have to be the people. There are so many great people that attend here. They have made "fitting in" very easy for me. I also enjoy how being in a Christian school has helped strengthen my faith and I'm able to learn more about Jesus. My faith has grown tremendously at ODCS because of Bible class and chapel. Being around other Christians has been a positive influence on my relationship with God. ODCS is preparing me for the next steps in life with college prep classes and Patriot Honors Academy." Maxx, ODCS HS Student

Because he is proud to be a Patriot...

" I like ODCS because it's a friendly environment. I'm not afraid to be myself. Everybody knows who I am here. The teachers will sit down and work with you and they take time with you. I'm able to grow both spiritually and physically. I am proud to be a Patriot. I'm always wearing Patriot gear wherever I go. We are different from other schools because we expect excellence and we are able to grow in our relationship with Christ because ODCS gives us a spiritual foundation. The staff here does not judge me and they accept me for who I am." Jafet, ODCS HS Student

 

Because we have nice teachers...

" I like ODCS because we get to learn about God and we have nice teachers here."- Emma Strader,ODCS Elementary Student
