Welcome

At Dayton Christian School, we boldly proclaim a Christian worldview in all that we do. We seek to prepare our students for life by providing strong, Christ-centered, Biblically-based academics, a full spectrum of athletics, excellent fine arts, and a multitude of service opportunities. Along the way, our students are impacted daily by our “living curriculum” – our faculty and staff living out their own walk of faith before them. As a result, our students learn to seek God’s truth for their own lives. A DCS graduate is prepared for college or the career world and ready to impact their world in a God-honoring way. Learn More

If I hadn’t attended Dayton Christian, I wouldn’t have made it to college.  I am not really certain I would have the faithful foundation that I have now.  The experiences that I had at Dayton Christian are priceless, and I’m thankful to the Lord and to everyone in the DC family who invested in me.

I’m thankful to the Lord and to everyone in the DC family who invested in me.

Class of 2017

All of our subjects were taught from a Biblical perspective, so no matter what field I go into in the future, I will be prepared to make a difference there. Our teachers genuinely cared about our entire person, not just our academic performance. They were all very approachable and were always willing to talk about spiritual matters with us, no… Read More

The Lord has tremendously blessed me with a school that desires to equip me for the rest of my life. I can't thank God enough for where I am.

Faith and learning was integrated in such a way at Dayton Christian so that everything we learned was pointed back to God. DC helped me grow in my faith and taught me things I would not have learned any other place. Read More

Family is the one word that describes Dayton Christian. No one is ever alone. Everyone helps each other. The teachers are always there to help and encourage you.

Why did you choose DC?

When my daughter and I visited DC, we knew this was where God wanted us.  The atmosphere of prayer and worship was evident as soon as you walked through the door.  We were very happy with the choice of classes and the school’s commitment to have Christ reflected in all they do. Read More

Even in math class, prayer starts the lesson. God is in each lesson no matter the subject. Teachers are interested in the prayers and concerns of their students.  It is a beautiful thing for a child to be able to go to their English teacher and ask for prayer.

What is your first memory at DC?

I remember crying with my mom on the first day of first grade. I wasn’t ready to leave her. But Mrs. Comer was a great teacher and she made my first day of school great. Read More

I love being allowed to pray at school, have Bible studies, and having chapel at school.

The faculty at Dayton Christian not only teaches us school subjects, they teach us to make real-world connections with a Christian worldview. I appreciate the Biblical instruction and… Read More
