Dayton Christian School has been the best decision my husband and I have ever made for our 4 children. Our kids have attended DCS from preschool- highschool. 2 of our children are now in college and thriving. We still have 2 in the highschool and they love it. The teachers all throughout our time there have developed our children into the most incredible writers and critical thinkers. The highschool has developed in our kids the ability to assess our culture through a loving Christian world view. Anyone who sends their kids here appreciates the teachers and the partnership they have with us parents. They have an open door policy. No school is perfect but if you are seeking a safe, bible based school with a high quality education and teachers who really care about your childrens success, this is the place for you.

My three girls, currently a junior, sophomore and 6th grader, have all attended Dayton Christian School since Pre-K. They are all thriving in the loving and stimulating environment at the school. Their teachers are dedicated to providing a Christian world view along with a first class education. This campus houses grades Pre-K through 12th which allows the older students to mentor and invest in the younger kids, providing a priceless, built-in role model system from athletes, fine arts stars, and other students whom the younger students easily relate to. As the students enter Jr and Sr High at DC, the Lord leads them on mission trips, service opportunities, and worship teams, which continues to pour love into their hearts and build the heart of a servant at an age when others are very self absorbed. I cannot imagine my girls being a part of any other school district. I am grateful that the Lord led our family to DC!!

We have had an amazing experience with Dayton Christian schools over the course of nearly 2 decades. We have had several children graduate from Dayton Christian as well have students that are currently in the system. We have found that they are challenged spiritually and academically to become the people that God created them to be. We have found the faculty and staff to be incredibly dedicated and devoted to teaching our kids but beyond that to be mentoring their hearts. On many occasions, the Dayton Christian faculty and staff have gone above and beyond to come alongside us as parents tohelp our children reach their fullest potential!

I have three children at Dayton Christian, from kindergarten to 7th grade. We have had the most wonderful experience since day 1, and any concerns we've ever had have been handled perfectly. My kids get excellent academic instruction from teachers who want more than anything what this mother's heart wants for them - that they have a personal relationship with Christ. Whether they are in class or at their extra-curricular school activities, excellence in effort and attitude is emphasized. The tuition is truly the best money my husband and I have ever spent.

We have 4 children at DCS from 1st through 8th grade. The teachers and administration consistently demonstrate their dedication to teaching our kids, both scholastically and spiritually. Many wonderful friendships have been made, both for our children and us. The kids look forward going to school every day! We are grateful that they enjoy learning and are being taught in an open partnership with parents, the church and the community - fully committed to showing the love of Jesus Christ.

Both of my children are thriving at DCS. They have teachers who truly care about them, fantastic peer groups, and an athletic program that is large enough to compete but small enough so that they can try new sports if they like. The classes are Biblically-integrated and taught from a Christian worldview. We love DC!
