An excellent education based on a
Solid Christian Worldview
Open Door Christian School has been providing superior quality education for students from K4-8th grade since 1973. Our mission is to assist parents in their responsibility to equip their children for life in God’s world. Discover the Open Door difference!
Small Classes allow our teachers to provide more individualized attention, stimulate additional dialogue, and spend more time engaging students in educational activities.
We provide an excellent education while reflecting Biblical truth and Christian values. This learning environment promotes academic excellence and wholesome character development.
A strong core curriculum ensures children enter each new grade ready to learn and prevents repetitions and gaps often found in public education. Your child will emerge well prepared with a shared body of knowledge and skills.
All students are encouraged to participate in enrichment activities which utilize their talents and passions. These include Art, Drama, Music, Spanish, and Computer Technology.
Sports offer fun learning experiences and promote friendly competition and teamwork. We encourage participation in sports opportunities provided through the school for all grade levels.
Open Door Christian School is pleased to partner with Guardian EDU, LLC to introduce international students to educational opportunities available in the U.S. Located in the heart of America, we are close to the services and attractions available in the twin cities: Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. We are minutes away from the Kansas Speedway, The Legends shopping district, and Children’s Mercy Soccer Stadium, rated one of the top two stadiums in the U.S.
Open Door Christian School provides education for K4-7th grade students.
Open Door Christian School’s mission is to assist parents in their responsibility of equipping their children for life in God’s World. Through an advanced learning experience, we challenge our students physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
Our Philosophy of Education: We exist for the purpose of inculcating by the gracious work of the Holy Spirit a Biblical consciousness in the minds and hearts of children of Christian parents. We hold the following to be true:
Authority – The Word of God, the Bible, is the absolute authority for both faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16) Biblical integration permeates all subject matter. Joy and contentment come as one lives in obedience to the Bible. (Jos. 1:8)
Truth – God is truth (John 1:1) and His Word is perfect. (Ps. 119:160) Jesus is the Word of God incarnate. (John 14:6)
Home – Parents are responsible for educating the children God has given them to be raised in the truth and obedience. (Deut. 6:7; Gen. 18:19; Prov. 22:6 and Eph. 6:4)
Church – The local body of believers forms the church and becomes the agency God uses to edify His people and minister to their needs. (Heb. 10:24-25; Acts 2:42 and Matt. 28:19-20)
Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality – We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of ODCS and to provide a biblical role model to the students and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by ODCS in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matt. 5:16; Phil. 2:14-16; I Thess. 5:22)
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen. 1:26-27)
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25) We believe that God intends physical intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (I Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4)
We believe that any form of immorality is sinful and offensive to God. (Matt. 15:18-20; I Cor. 6:9-10)
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom. 10:9-10; 1 Cor. 6:9-11)
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the policies of ODCS.
Open Door Christian School is a division of Open Door Baptist Church Ministries of Kansas City, Kansas.
