Oklahoma Bible Academy provides outstanding education at tuition rates far below those of other private Christian schools. One of the factors making this possible is the faithful commitment of families and alumni of OBA. We have a proud heritage of excellent support from founding families, churches, businesses, alumni, and friends. However, it takes all of our school families to continue to support the school and all of its activities.
No family pays the full price of what it actually takes to send their child to OBA. The tuition that parents pay covers only 73% of their education each year. The other 27% is earned through the following giving programs. You can help support all or one of these programs which in turn will support OBA students.
You can use PayPal to make a donation to OBA. Just click the “donate” button and it will take you to the PayPal site and process your donation.

1All music, sports, drama and academic team activities are supported by the Booster Club. The money raised to support these activities comes from corporate sponsors, family memberships, meals served at sporting events, spirit merchandise, the KOFM Basketball Tournament, and the Trojan Indoor Track and Field Games. All school families and friends are given the opportunity to purchase a family membership or become a corporate sponsor of OBA.
2This is a program designed to bridge the gap between tuition and actual per pupil costs as well as provide funds for furthering OBA’s quest for academic excellence. We are seeking Heritage Partners who will pledge $1,000 to $5,000 per year for three years as a commitment to academic excellence.
3Every year we set in our budget an amount that we will need in gifts to help offset tuition costs at OBA. $70,000 is needed this school year to help cover costs. If you don’t designate where you want a gift to go this is where we will place it.
4OBA hosts an Annual Benefit Auction to raise funds for the general budget at OBA. The auction is held in October each year. Each school family is encouraged to participate in this fundraiser by donating food or auction items and participating in the day’s events.
5OBA hosts three special music programs throughout the school year. They also provide special music for area churches and other organizations. Proceeds from offerings taken at these events allow us to keep tuition costs low.
6Jumbo Foods in Enid has generously agreed to give OBA 5% of all purchases made with OBA Band Bucks at their stores. All that is aksed of you is that you take a few minutes to stop at the Jumbo’s office window and purchase OBA Band Bucks and then use them as cash when paying for your groceries. All money raised from the purchase of band bucks goes directly to the band program.
7Purchase an engraved brick or granite tile and leave a permanent legacy or honor someone special in your life–students, graduates, parents, friends, teachers, administrators or others. The Pathway to Commitment begins at the entrance to the football field and will continue towards the stadium and multi-purpose building. This program benefits the development of the indoor and outdoor track programs.
8These gifts help families that would not be able to otherwise afford an OBA education.
9Each year OBA receives gifts through the efforts of donors who take advantage of their company’s matching gift benefit. Contact your human resource department and find out if you can multiply the power of your gift at Oklahoma Bible Academy.
