Our Distinctives

 

SPIRITUAL FORMATION

All classes are biblically integrated and a daily Bible or Christian living class is part of each student’s day. Elementary Bible curriculum is based on Christian character development and scripture memorization. In jr. high and high school, Bible is a yearlong class that applies the principles of God’s word in everyday life. Chapel is a special time for the entire school to come together. Each chapel is unique and offers each age group time to praise, worship, pray, and study scripture. Guest speakers, students, and faculty share about God’s work in their lives. Special chapels held throughout the year honor important people in our lives, such as veterans and grandparents.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

All of our K-12th classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including SMART Boards, iPads, Chromebooks, software to connect to our 3D printers, updated wireless system, and iPad minis for teachers. We are committed to preparing our students with 21st Century skills so they are competitive in today’s world. 

Servant Leadership

We teach the importance of leadership skills at TC. Students are given opportunities in both traditional and nontraditional experiences to serve others. When given the chance to lead and serve, students gain confidence and passion. No matter what kind of an “influencer” your child will become, he or she will be able to explore servant leadership through our school-wide programs.

 

Student Life

 

Athletics

Troy Christian is a member of the Ohio High School Athletic Association. When athletics are seen from the Christian perspective, winning has a broader definition and our athletes a greater purpose. We want our coaches and athletes to be used of God in the lives of those they meet. Troy Christian athletics always aim to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit as our Lord opens doors for active ministry. “Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant. Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…” (Matthew 20:26,28).

Fine Arts

Troy Christian believes that the fine arts play a valuable role in our school and as a part of a student’s education. The fine arts give a student the opportunity to draw closer to God through personal expression of art, music, and drama. Our fine arts classes and extracurricular opportunities help create a well-rounded individual and allow a student to discover and develop their passions and God-given abilities.

Special Needs and Intervention Services

Troy Christian implements an inclusionary model for delivery of support services for students with identified disabilities. Students eligible for special education services are supported by intervention specialist staff, who assist in designing accommodations and necessary modifications to curriculum and instruction within the typical classroom. In addition, intervention specialists and certified teachers of mathematics and language arts host “Skill-Building Sessions” for students with disabilities who are experiencing gaps in foundational concepts. Supports for clarification of task and assessments are also provided by our intervention specialists  and math / language arts teams. TCHS has formed an intervention assistance team, designed to help teachers identify specific instructional and learning impediments demonstrated by their students and to apply research-based intervention strategies.
