This Is Why DC

As parents, many of us sacrifice to send our kids to Dayton Christian School.  We sacrifice financially. We sacrifice our time to drive them to school and sporting events. We may give up nice vacations and other luxuries to make sure that a DC education remains a top priority in our family.  We willingly choose […]

Finding a Life’s Calling

“The fundamental element I want us to pass on to every student is to help them discern their life’s calling.” This quote really struck me in an interview I had with Dr. Gredy, DCS Head of School, when he first stepped into the role in July.  Yes, we are Dayton Christian and our focus is […]

The Joy Now

Today I watched the fourth graders visit the Pride Store for the first time. I saw the wonder in their eyes as they walked in the small room, decorated just for them, and I caught their first glimpses of joy as they explored the treasures they could “buy” with their Pride Passes.  I watched them […]

The 17,000 Hour Decision: Why Christian Education Matters

Are You As Smart As You Think You Are?

Have you ever seen the television show “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?” I have seen it once or twice, and I think there are some pretty smart fifth graders in the world. As I was thinking about this show one day, I realized that I play that game on a regular basis with […]

New Year’s Resolutions That Matter

I don’t know about you, but the weeks after Christmas and New Year’s tends to be a time of introspection for me. After the excess of the holidays and the busyness of the season, I yearn for simplicity. I want organization. I want, in short, what everyone else wants: a new beginning. That’s why we […]

No Politically Correct Christmas Here

At Dayton Christian School, we don’t have winter break. We enjoy a Christmas vacation. We don’t say “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays,” when we greet each other in the hallways.
