Kindergarten through Grade 8

Odessa Christian School's main campus is located at 19521 Michigan Avenue, in the peaceful and secluded rural village of Odessa in northwest Hillsbourgh County. Our kindergarten through 8th grades are blessed to meet on this beautiful 20+ acre lakefront campus each day where the ministry of Odessa Christian School first began in 2008.

 

The natural beauty here testifies to the breathtaking work of the Lord’s hands. We hear visitors say so often that the peace of the Lord is tangible in this place, and we agree wholeheartedly! Throughout the day students spend time learning in the classroom, in creation, and throughout the campus. 

 

We structure our school day with efficiency of learning in mind, with class time used very wisely so that very little homework is necessary in grades K-8, with most homework assigned consisting of quality reading and math reinforcement. Students work hard at school, and we want them to have their evenings available to recharge and enjoy family time. 

 

There is truly no other school like OCS, where people love Jesus, each other, and where learning is valuable and authentic!
