Although OBA is a very small school with only 38 students enrolled it is very strong academically. The combined classes are great for the students who are average & above average that can pick up bits and pieces from the class above them. It is also great for those who may struggle, because they have more teacher face time, and the more advanced students assist them. It is very much like one big family. The tuition is much lower than the other private schools in our area, but you are giving up band and some sports. The administrator truly has a heart for our school and students. What a blessing this school has been to our family. We know that our students are receiving an excellent education with a firm faith-based foundation.

Parents, this school has been a huge blessing to my family. The faculty cares about the students and the curriculum has a strong bibilical base. This provides students with the traditional academic stucture with a Christian perspective. The families are close and care about one another as well. Parent involvement is high and parent teacher colaboration is present. Music, art, band, drama and many sports are available. The students have formed a strong sense of community and are building lifetime friendships. We are blessed with a new administrator this year and he is a wonderful person. As with all schools, there have been difficulties, However, Christ is worshiped, preached and loved at Otsego Baptist Academy. Students are protected from the exposure of worldly teaching, the tuition is fair and both of my children have excelled testing several grade levels above their level on standarized tests. OBA is a great school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
