Twin Oaks Christian School first opened its doors in September of 1972 as Glenridge Christian School, a ministry of the Glenridge Presbyterian Church. This church is now called Covenant Presbyterian Church. The first year included grades 1-3 with a total of 6 students and one teacher. The following year the enrollment jumped to 17 children in two classrooms. The enrollment was larger than the number of board members. With increased enrollment, it was time to find a new location to accommodate a growing school.
The Covenant Presbyterian Church accepted the school and the name changed to Covenant Christian School. For 18 years, the School was a part of the ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church. As the church grew, so did the school. Satellite campuses were established at what is now Covenant Presbyterian Church and at a local Baptist church building. Enrollment grew to 140 students.
The move to Twin Oaks Presbyterian Church took place in February of 1992. When the church designed the building, they considered the School’s needs. As church growth gave rise to a building addition, they again considered the school. With that initiative, the number of classrooms and the enrollment capacity doubled. By September of 2000, 90% of the enrollment capacity was realized.
In August of 2004, TOCS added a 7th grade and implemented a Middle School that now includes grades 6 through 8. Twin Oaks serves children in Preschool through Grade 8 and continues to promote Christian education within the community and local churches.
From its beginning, Twin Oaks Christian School has been committed to academic excellence and Christian formation. Then, like now, families made the investment in Christian education in an area with strong public schools because of something not available there: Biblical worldview. Everyday, teachers instruct students from the foundation of God’s truth, helping them to discover the wonder of His world. Standardized test results have, in part, demonstrated the school’s academic excellence, while mature graduates reveal the benefits of a distinctly Christian education.
