Now accepting applications for our preschool, elementary, middle school & daycare.  Visit our admissions page for more information.

Our life with Christ is to be an adventure filled with joy, love, learning, laughter, and community.  That’s what Olive Knolls Christian School offers your child beginning in preschool and all the way through the eighth grade.

In today’s cultural decay, you have searched for a safe place for your child’s education, but hunger for more than protection.  When your student graduates from middle-school, you want them prepared to face a world hostile to the values with which you raised them.  Will your future teen be able to face today’s world and remain strong and courageous? That’s what we do here.  We have been established since 1979 to inspired and equip the next generation of truth seekers who discover and maximize their God-given talents to become salt and light in their world!  We look forward to having your child join us!

Last weekend was the weekend of champions for OKCS. Six of our students won significant ribbons in the district Spelling Bee against nine other schools. One of our champions qualified to continue to regionals (one step away from the Washington DC finals). To top off the weekend two of our four robotics teams qualified for the state championships! Team 8781A received the prestigious Design Award. Team 8781X climbed to the pentacle of league achievement: The Excellence Award. These accomplishments are to be celebrated with cheers, fanfare, and perhaps a trip to Baskin Robbins! But there may be something even more important that took place: losing. Not everyone received a prize.

We would always like to be winners, but we can’t always be. In fact, on our life’s journey toward our goals there may be more losses than wins. Babe Ruth struck out 1330 times, but yet hit 714 homeruns! Thomas Edison once said, “I didn’t fail one thousand times. The light bulb was an invention with one thousand steps.” One of the most important lessons we can give our children is how to deal with failure.

So how do we give our kids the grit to overcome their defeats and march on?

  • Encourage them, but don’t shelter them. Let them experience and deal with the loss.
  • Instruct them to take responsibility. Don’t allow them to participate in the blame game (“Lousy referee!” “If I had a better teacher,” “That other team cheated,”etc.). It’s in our sin nature – since the beginning – to blame others for our short-comings. When we do that we become a victim and are powerless to activate positive change.
  • Give them a bigger reason for their efforts greater than a trophy! Something as big as God! Paul said, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” (Col 3:23). When our focus is for God’s glory it’s an attitude adjuster and a courage creator. It’s a very liberating thing to realize “It’s not about me”! It also has rewards attached to it that don’t decay like a blue ribbon or rust like a trophy. They’re eternal.

In the midst of defeat we want our children to realize these words from Winston Churchill: “Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.”

Let’s partner together to inspire courageous kids!
