In 2000 Open Door Christian School became an official ministry of Oak Street Baptist Church. Oak Street provides the facilities, takes care of the maintenance and janitorial needs and pays for all utility and water bills. These are all tremendous benefits to ODCS.


Open Door is different than all the other ministries of Oak Street Baptist Church because our enrollment includes students who are members of other churches. We are blessed to teach students from a wide range of Christian denominations. There are still other students who do not attend church anywhere or have a Christian background. The vision of ODCS is to be a support to students and their families of Graham and the surrounding communities.


Oak Street takes care of a great financial burden to the school by providing the items mentioned earlier. The school is responsible for all other expenses and improvements. Through generous donations and fundraising efforts, the school provides scholarships to students in need; improves the school through various things like technology needs, security measures, and extra teaching aids; and allows for tuition to be at a rate where average families can afford to send their children. We are thankful to those individuals and businesses that choose to be part of our ministry through financial giving.
