Old Plank Christian Academy

Caring teachers, excellent Christian curriculum

“Smiling and succeeding” is how Principal Gary Griffis describes a new student at Old Plank Christian Academy.

“It is amazing to watch a new student who is nervous about attending a new school find a place of success and friendship at our awesome school.” Griffis also said, “One of our goals is to create a positive atmosphere and climate where students can quickly adjust, acclimate and succeed.”

The motto, “Where Students Succeed with Excellence,” permeates the OPCA family. The students at Old Plank Christian Academy know that success is the only option. OPCA highly encourages family involvement in the school.

“Parent involvement is one of the keys to extraordinary student success," said Griffis. "Parent involvement is welcome!”

According to the Rev. Larry McGinley, pastor of Old Plank Road Baptist Church, the primary goal of OPCA is to teach students to live a successful Christian life by learning and applying the principles of the Bible.

“Our ministry is to lead people of all ages to faith in Jesus Christ and disciple them,” McGinley said.

Secondly, the academy is committed to cultivating success spiritually, academically and socially through caring, degreed teachers and excellent Christian curriculum.

The teacher-to-student ratio is 18-to-1 and the school offers a curriculum from pre-K (age 3) to 12th grade.

OPCA Elementary students are challenged with creative teaching methods using the ABEKA curriculum. They also enjoy enrichment, computer, library and recess.

The Old Plank Christian Academy Middle and High Schools offer rigorous academic courses designed for college preparatory study. Electives include computer, sign language, band, chorus, weightlifting, home economics, physical education and others.

The OPCA Defenders have a wide variety of varsity and JV athletics. Football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, cross country, baseball and girls softball are all played competitively (winning many district and state titles).

Old Plank Christian Academy is accredited through the Florida Coalition of Christian Private Schools Accreditation, Inc. The FCCPSA proudly maintains an accreditation partnership agreement AdvancED/SACS. Old Plank Christian Academy is also accredited by the National Association of Private Schools, and graduates are readily accepted into accredited colleges and universities.
