Spiritual and Social Transition
At Dayton Christian Middle School, we are privileged to educate children during some very important transitional years. They are coming out of the elementary school that has laid a solid foundation and are looking forward to those high school years that will shape their futures. That is why we call ourselves the HUB of the school — We stand in the gap in these transitional years. We are here to HELP students achieve academic excellence by preparing them for the rigors of high school life. We see the importance of teaching how to be a vital part of the community of Christ. Therefore, we want to UNITE the body of Christ. We also know that God has a perfect plan for their lives and we want to BUILD into the student’s eternal future. We are Helping, Uniting and Building students for the glory of God.
As with our elementary program, all our courses are taught from a Biblical worldview and challenge our middle schoolers with a course of study that meets and exceeds the State of Ohio Content Standards.
The English Language Arts curriculum prepares our students for creative and rigorous reading and writing applications they will need for the high school years. DC also offers our students opportunities to take part in the ACSI Speech Meet and Spelling Bee.
The mathematics progression from elementary to middle school continues using the Math Connects curriculum. Eligible students may start pre-Algebra in seventh grade and take Algebra I for high school credit in eighth grade. Students may also take part in the ACSI Math Olympics or the Geography Bee.
