Open Door Christian Academy


There is an ongoing controversy over private school education versus public school education. Public schools are rapidly moving away from Judeo-Christian moral values by promoting secular views and anti-biblical doctrines.  At Open Door Christian Academy (ODCA), we believe your children deserve to be taught Christian values as well as educated by a strong academic curriculum such as Bob Jones University. The public schools, in many cases, skip over chapters in their textbooks to push students through the class rather than making sure they comprehend the material that is being taught.  At ODCA, we strive to maintain the highest level of education and moral standards. Our goal is to prepare your children to face the challenges of this world and to stand strong in the power of Christ. 



The Present

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15

The Future

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Pro 22:6

The Challenge

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 Job 2:15

The Victory

...but he who does the will of God abides forever. 1 Job  2:17

The Need

The need identified and the solution provided...

While many private Christian schools find it more and more difficult to stay financially solvent, Open Door Christian Academy has been able to keep tuition's low......$390 per month per student with discounts given for 2nd and 3rd children enrolled.

The Academy opened in 2005 to provide an alternative to public school curriculum that increasingly considers God an intrusion in the lives of our children. ODCA offers students K-12th grade, a high quality education while preparing them for leading a strong Christian life in our secular-centered world. The 2010 graduating class sent 75% of its seniors on to college, most of which had extended scholarships to local universities.

Thank you, Lord Jesus!

The Vision

Train up a child in the way he should go...

For over a decade, Open Door leaders envisioned a quality Bible-based school. With this God-given vision, the Open Door Christian Academy was opened in 2005. Senior Pastor Don Hoag, who taught at ODCA, is now the Principal over the Academy. Students, who were left behind in public education, seem to flourish after transferring to ODCA. Bob Jones University, one of the nation’s renown Christian teacher’s universities, created the curriculum used at ODCA.

Students are challenged, built up, and better equipped for college, the work of the ministry, and future endeavors of life…
