Troy Christian Schools, Inc. is a college and career-preparatory, inter-denominational Christian school. We are a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The school was founded in 1980 and was chartered in 1982 by the State of Ohio as a K-8 elementary school. In the fall of 2001, Troy Christian Schools, Inc. was chartered by the State of Ohio as an 18-months-old through 12th grade school. Our enrollment is 132 for early childhood, 286 for grades K-6, and 354 for grades 7-12. We have students from 35 different school districts and 72 different churches.
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.
Troy Christian students will be SALT in their world now. Matthew 5:13
SALT is to Speak, Act, Lead, and Think like Jesus.
We encourage our students to strive to be R2G2 students. They are to have Respect, Responsibility, Gratitude, and Genuineness.
We are one of the few Christian schools in the country that provides and requires mission opportunities for all children in early childhood through 12th grade. Each class selects a groupof people to serve throughout the school year.

Special Education Intervention
Visual & Performing Arts
Chapel is a special time for the entire school to come together or to have time for each age group to praise, worship, pray, and study scripture. Each chapel is a unique time. Guest speakers share how God is working in their lives. There are also chapels planned to honor special people in our lives.
Students find opportunities to be involved in student council, athletics, choral and band groups, speech, chapel presentations, missions, service projects, academic competitions, yearbook, science fair, National Honor Society, show choir, and leadership development. Athletics include baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross-country, football, golf, soccer, softball, track, swimming, volleyball, and wrestling.
People learn best by using their hands and minds and by doing work that is real, relevant, and meaningful to us. The three ways in which we plan to enhance learning at the elementary are school activities, after school activities, and individual classroom activities. We also participate in the Miami County Association for Gifted Children in order to better serve the needs of gifted children in our school.
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 specialistsand 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.
