Next month, Rejoice Christian Schools is honored to celebrate its 20th anniversary of partnering with parents to train students in Bible-based Christian principles and the establishment of a high-quality academic foundation. Through the schools’ 20 years, RCS maintains the same vision of providing students with excellence in education and strength in character so that students will be spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially equipped to impact their community and the world for Christ.
RCS families, staff, patrons and area community members are invited to attend RCS’ 20th Anniversary Celebration. The celebration begins at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in the RCS North Campus’ Auditorium, 13413 E. 106th St. N. RCS Superintendent Craig Shaw will speak about the schools’ past, present and future goals, and a reception will follow the celebration.
Throughout the schools’ 20 years, RCS has employed teachers, administrators and support staff who have a heart to do the Lord’s work through education. RCS was founded as a ministry of Rejoice Free Will Baptist Church as a preschool, and throughout the years, Rejoice Christian Schools has expanded to a school that educates students ranging from age 3 to the 12th grade. RCS is one school with two campuses. RCS preschool and elementary students attend classes at the RCS North Campus, which is located on East 106th Street North.
To expand, the school opened its South Campus to house middle and high school classrooms. The former First Christian Church at 12200 E. 86th St. N. was transformed to RCS’ South Campus. The campus features a science lab, practice field, gym, contemporary living lab, media center and two computer labs.
Throughout the 20 years, RCS is dedicated in preparing students for college and life, and the schools’ administrators, teachers and staff believe Christian schools must excel in teaching math, science, fine arts and more. With RCS’ high academic standards set, enrollment continues to increase each semester.
This academic year, RCS is experiencing its second year in the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association, and the schools’ athletic teams are excelling in the association. Plus, RCS is expanding its athletic opportunities with soccer and tennis.
Rejoice Christian Schools’ students are known for more than their academic and athletic accomplishments. They are also known for their continued work with missions. From Operation Christmas Child collection drives to donating canned goods to Neighbors In Need, RCS students are giving back to the community they call home and beyond. This year, RCS is focusing on its newest mission project – Rejoice Africa. The school will be located in the Ivory Coast west area of Africa.
This year, RCS is honored to celebrate its 20th anniversary with the Owasso community, and more importantly, RCS is excited to continue educating area students while expanding its educational and athletic opportunities to current and future students.
