Odenton Christian School was founded in the 1970′s in response to the untenable situation in the government school system, after the pastor of Odenton Baptist Church preached a message on that subject. This was when public schools were much safer and offered a better education than they do today. In that time when home schooling was almost unheard of, the Christian school movement was expanding and Christian students faced a grim prospect at the hands of a public education system that was departing from God and His word at a rapid pace. A Christian school with a quality education in a Godly environment was the original objective of OCS. As the years progressed, Odenton Christian School grew very large as a result of its combination of Christian standards, quality education, and affordable tuition costs.
