"We go above and beyond in treating children as individuals

academically, spiritually, socially, and physically."

Why families choose OAPS:
Educating Your Child is Multi-Tiered
Your Child is Unique


Our philosophy is built on the belief that God has created each student with unique abilities and gifts, and through His grace and strength all children can achieve.


Collaborative Learning


Children work both independently and together in building skills, problem-solving, gaining knowledge of the world around them, and exploring that world.



Internationally Diverse Student Community


OAPS is is proud to have a diverse student population, as this more accurately reflects the incredible world God created. Our student body currently represents North and South America, Africa and Asia. 

The OAPS Curriculum


Our rigorous academic program is Christ-centered and biblically-based. An enriched curriculum relevant to life skills, complimented by small class sizes and individualized instruction, is the teaching standard to which we hold ourselves accountable.


Growing Students for Continued Success


Each year, OAPS graduates move on to high school where they continue as leaders in their classes, many of whom graduate high school as their respective classes' valedictorian and salutatorian.


New Facilities


OAPS opened its doors to its newly built site in the fall of 2014. This was due to the support of the Bainum Family Foundation, the Olney Adventist SDA Church, and OAPS families.
