Middletown Christian Schools
Middletown Christian Schools has a rich history of providing a well-rounded education for children and youth since its beginning. Alumni have gone on to excel in their choice of vocations and counted in places of responsibility around the country. Many have gone on to make their mark in such fields as medicine, law, investments, national television, news and program production, missions, pastors, teaching, international logistics, management, and other avenues, making a difference in the lives of people of all ages.
Our school was established in 1972 as a ministry of Grace Baptist Church. Under the spiritual and dynamic leadership of our pastor Dr. Roger D. Green, the church continues to grow (average attendance over 1,100) and expand its various ministries in the community and surrounding areas. Established over 50 years ago, Grace Baptist provides a stable foundation for Middletown Christian Schools. Our school is part of a balanced program geared to meeting the needs of the entire family.
We are located in Middletown, Ohio, situated in the beautiful rolling hills and the Miami River Valley of Southwestern Ohio. Our school is strategically located on Interstate 75, midway between the metropolitan areas of Dayton and Cincinnati. Sixteen (16) universities and colleges are located within a 50-mile radius of our campus, including a branch of Miami University in Middletown.
Our current enrollment is 594 students. One hundred and fifty one (150) of those are in our Preschool, 297 in the Elementary, and 147 in our High School. We strive to keep the cost very reasonable, giving as many students as possible an opportunity to have a quality Christian education.
Our school uses three facilities located on the property of Grace Baptist Church. A preschool facility, completed in 2000, with ten classrooms, a large indoor play area, kitchen and office complex provides loving care for three through five year olds. Kindergarten through Eighth Grade is housed in our new 6.2 million dollar educational building, which includes a music facility, stage, two libraries, 19 classrooms and a new gym completed in 2005. The High School shares the Grace Baptist Church building with a fully equipped computer laboratory, science laboratory, and athletic complex. One hundred and four (104) acres of property provide area for two playgrounds, athletic fields, and picturesque picnic grounds.
Our classroom structure is conventional graded classrooms from Kindergarten through Twelfth (12) Grade. We also have our Preschool and DayCare. Our current curriculum and textbooks include A Beka Book Publications, Bob Jones Press, and Saxon Math.
The average length of service at Middletown Christian Schools of our present faculty is over 9 ½ years. A low turnover rate adds continuity and stability to our quality Christian school program. We believe it is essential to have a dedicated faculty who think of teaching as a ministry rather than just a job. We currently have 16 teachers in the Preschool and DayCare, with 35 teachers in the Elementary, Junior High, and High School. Some of the Christian colleges our faculty have graduated from including Arlington Baptist College, Baptist Bible College, Bob Jones University, Cedarville College, Hyles Anderson College, Maranatha Baptist College, Northland Baptist College, Temple Baptist College, Tennessee Temple University, and Trinity Baptist College. Several of our faculty also graduated from very reputable public universities.
