Celebrating 50 Years of God’s Faithfulness

Fifty years ago, Worthington Christian School opened its doors to students for the first time. Can you believe it? That historic moment resulted from families dreaming, praying, planning, volunteering, and donating toward a school in Central Ohio rooted in God’s Word that would equip students and graduates to carry the light of Christ into the world.

God’s faithfulness has been undeniable.

Much has changed in 50 years, but Worthington Christian’s commitment to offering an outstanding academic and co-curricular program embedded in biblical truth remains firm. Join us in carrying on the 50-year legacy of giving by supporting our Shining Ever Brighter Campaign. Your gift may be directed to a specific 50th Anniversary initiative or given without restriction to Where Needed Most.

Several food trucks will be on-site, or pack a cooler of your tailgate favorites. (Reminder: WC is an alcohol-free campus.)
