about bible in the schools - SINCE 1922
Since 1922, Bible in the Schools has provided Hamilton County public school students in grades 6-12 with the opportunity to study the Bible in their classroom. These courses, offered as electives, allow students the opportunity to study the Bible from a literary or historical perspective. The Bible History program consists of five elective courses taught from a viewpoint-neutral, Court-approved curriculum. Electives are funded entirely through generous donors of the Hamilton County community and beyond. Charitable donations through Bible in the Schools, a 501(c)(3), cover the complete cost of the program, including Bible History teacher compensation, curriculum, professional development, and other resources. Entering its 99th year, the Hamilton County Bible History program seeks equal access for all public school students.
