I LOVE this school. Your childrend will know that they are loved at Open Bible Christian Academy. We moved our children out of the Harford County Public School System to Open Bible. On her first day, my second grader came home so happy because her teacher gave her a hug and told her that she loved her. The quality of the teachers make all the difference in the world! Its four years later and my children are thriving. It's easy to do when you are in an environment where you know you are loved!
