TCS began in 1980 offering grades K-5 with 37 students. In that same year, what was formerly First Baptist Nursery School came under the authority of Troy Christian as Troy Christian Preschool.
In 1982 the school became chartered by the State of Ohio as a K-6 elementary school. By 1984 classes were being offered in grades K-8 and preschool classes for children 3 to 5 years old. Additional classroom space was purchased and remodeled to house our 4th - 8th grades. That year attendance was over 375 in both K-8 and preschool. In 1988 a Pre-Kindergarten class was added. Then in the 1990-91 school year, two major events took place. Troy Christian Schools became incorporated, which meant becoming independent from First Baptist Church. Over ten acres of land were purchased at 1586 McKaig Avenue and the facility on this new property was remodeled to accommodate our Junior High classes. In May 1993, a groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of a building project. A new gymnasium, cafeteria area, and 10 new classrooms were built onto the existing facility.
In 1994, we began our Childcare ministry with 35 children. For two years the Troy Christian Board of Trustees and a special committee researched the feasibility of beginning a high school in the Troy area. After much prayer and research, the board voted unanimously in December 1995 to become partners with Dayton Christian Schools to begin a high school. In the fall of 1996, the high school came under Dayton Christian authority and began a 7th - 9th grade program. Also that year, a group of families purchased the adjacent 16 acres to the west of our current facility giving us a total of 30 acres along I-75 for both schools to use.
At the beginning of 1999-2000 school year not only did we begin our 20th year, but also occupied a new 17,000 square foot addition to our elementary school. The addition provided us with nine more classrooms, a new computer lab, offices, restrooms, and a library.
In the fall of 2000 Troy Christian Schools, Inc. purchased the existing high school from Dayton Christian Schools. Then in the summer of 2001, Troy Christian Schools, Inc. became an 18-month - 12th grade school. Upon the purchase of the high school, a building campaign began to erect a 41,000 square foot gymnasium, classrooms, computer lab, commons area, kitchen, and library. Along with this building, a field house was built with a weight room and locker rooms. The stadium project was initiated and completed to include a football/soccer field and an all-weather eight-lane track.
In 2014 we began a building campaign to begin additions and renovations to our Early Childhood wing, Elementary, and Jr. High and High School as well as adding a new Ministry, Arts, and Career Center. This comprehensive building campaign will touch all aspects of our school family and nearby communities, from parents who entrust their precious infants and preschoolers to our care at our Early Childhood Education Center to our Elementary, Jr. High and High School facilities. Our entire community and local businesses will benefit as we partner together through internships and leadership development.
Troy Christian Schools’ ministry that began in 1980 with 37 students in grades K-5 and a $98,000 budget has developed into a ministry that is now a school of Early Childhood through 12th grade with over 900 students. Our goal is to continue providing excellence service to parents that seek Christian education and care for their children.
Troy Christian Schools is located 20 miles north of Dayton just off 1-75 in the city of Troy, Ohio.
