Olive Knolls Christian School has provided loving care and a quality educational program since 1979.
OKCS has been partnering with parents and with this community by providing a Christ-centered educational program in a nurturing-uplifting environment.
Parents continue to say, “I feel my children are in a safe place.” As of 2004, OKCS achieved a six year accreditation from the Association of Christian Schools International, (A.C.S.I.).
This organization evaluates schools on their spiritual, organizational, and academic standards.
They have given us the longest accreditation granted by this organization.
OKCS offers a well-rounded education program with a well-qualified teaching staff, state of the art computer lab, sound academic curriculum, fine arts opportunities, and a physical education program with a focus on the President’s Physical Fitness requirements.
We have a quality pre-school program that helps children learn socialization skills and gain a thorough basis for successful academic achievement.
Our passion is to see children grow spiritually, to become self-directed learners, to become healthy individuals, and collaborative workers.
Our goal is to help every child discover that God is essential in every aspect of life.

School Reviews

My apologies, I am NOT endorsing this school but was given no other option besides 5 stars. I wrote an open letter to the school administration which is too large to post here but I am happy to share it with anyone who asks. It was a very well-thought-out letter, with scripture included and it was met with a very passive-aggressive response from the principal, Rusty Rhoades. I am leaving reviews about the terrible "Sunday Only Christians" that run this school in hopes of accomplishing 3 things: 1. Other parents/students knowing what`s happening in their own school. 2. Other parents/students feeling/receiving the same treatment are brave enough to also speak out about it. 3. This school administration ponders and realizes what true Christianity is about and they no longer put "Sunday Christians" in positions of authority at the school.
