More than just college-prep school.

Academic performance is a key measure for school success – but we believe it’s not the only measure. We continually make the grade and set our standards high, while acknowledging our teaching must serve more than just outcomes. Here are a few of our academic accomplishments.

GRADES K-6

National Blue Ribbon Honoree

In 2016, the U.S. Department of Education award Worthington Christian School grades K-5 the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for Exemplary High Performance.  This is one of the most prestigious school awards in the country. In order to be nominated by the Council for American Private Education for this award, a school’s aggregate student performance on its standardized test scores must place the school in the top 15 percent for all schools nationally in each grade level in both mathematics and language arts.
