AmyHenkel-9276FOCUSING ON CHRIST

Established in 1963, Dayton Christian Schools is one of the largest nondenominational Christian School systems in the United States with students representing nearly 300 churches. Dayton Christian is chartered by the State of Ohio and accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International.

It is our desire to work with the local church and the evangelical community as we seek to assist Christian families in their Biblical responsibility to train their children to become Christlike, and to fulfill God's purpose for their lives in the home, church, and society. Our faculty and staff are dedicated professionals who strive to develop young people into godly men and women of integrity who will serve their churches, their workplace, and their world.
