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.

There was so much to love at Dayton Christian: teachers who loved the Lord and me, students who pushed me to work harder, friends who encouraged me, and those chapel services filled with God’s love and the Holy Spirit. The best part of all were the teachers who sincerely cared about my life outside the classroom. They sacrificed so much… Read More

Our son started in the Dayton Christian Preschool program, and through this we have learned the importance of kindergarten readiness and transition.

My favorite part about attending Dayton Christian School is not just the relationships I have built with my peers, but also the relationships I have with some of the teachers and staff. The faculty at Dayton Christian do not teach us school subjects, they teach us to make real-world connections with a Christian worldview. I appreciate the Biblical instruction and… Read More
