Welcome Message from our New Principal
Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our forty-second year here at Open Door Christian Academy, and my first year as Principal! This promises to be a year filled with wonderful opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before. We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a wealth of activities, performing arts groups, and athletic teams certain to encourage our students to be involved and stay connected.
During the 2017-18 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of excellence in education both spiritually and academically.
Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our ODCA program.
We look forward to a very positive and productive year together, and extend a special invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want, we need and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your children during their formative school years.
Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at ODCA. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if and when the need arises, and to stay informed about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.
Again, we welcome you to another exciting school year here at Open Door. With God’s love and direction, we know it will be an awesome school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day.
