The School

Troy Christian Schools are a college and career-preparatory, inter-denominational Christian school. We are a member of Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The school was founded in 1980 and became chartered in 1982 by the State of Ohio as a     K-8 elementary school. In the fall of 2001, Troy Christian Schools, Inc. became chartered by the State of Ohio as an 18-month through 12th grade school. Our enrollment is 197 for Early Childhood, 295 for K-6, and 354 for 7-12. We have students from 27 different school districts and 78 different churches.   

Our Mission

Troy Christian Schools exist to uphold God’s truth as we assist parents in the education of their children’s minds and the transformation of their hearts in a Christ-centered learning environment.

Our Vision

Troy Christian students will be SALT in their world now. Matthew 5:13

SALT is to Speak, Act, Lead, and Think like Jesus.

R2G2 Students

We encourage our students to strive to be R2G2 students. They are to have Respect, Responsibility, Gratitude, and Genuineness.

Missions

We are one of the few Christian schools in the country that requires and provides mission opportunities for all children in early childhood through 12th grade. Each class selects a group of people to serve throughout the school year.

Enrichment, Service, & Ministry Week

High school students attend non-traditional courses or trips during ESM Week. These courses and trips allow students and teachers to experience opportunities that are not possible in the traditional classroom setting and that fit their interests.

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 / 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 then apply research-based intervention strategies.
