We Are Distinctly Christian
DCS is uncompromisingly Christian. Because we are a covenant school, our students are surrounded by staff, teachers, and peers who all share their Christian beliefs and values. DCS’s unique community facilitates the growth of roots, which will both establish students in Christian values and truth, and prepare them to thrive in new areas of growth. To establish and maintain a harmonious Christian environment at DCS, at least one parent living with a prospective student must consent (during the enrollment process) to our parent covenant and agree with our statement of faith.
Serving North Atlanta Families
DCS is currently a K-8th grade accredited covenant Christian school, located at 1445 Mount Vernon Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338. As an independent, non-denominational private school, DCS serves families in Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Doraville, Chamblee, East Cobb, and many other surrounding areas in Atlanta, GA. The mission of Dunwoody Christian School is to partner with parents to develop children who are grounded in Christ-like character, possess exceptional knowledge, and are prepared to embrace life’s opportunities and challenges. Our vision is to grow beyond 8th grade and become among the most respected K-12th grade covenant Christian schools in Georgia
Academic Excellence, Christian Community, and Affordable Tuition
DCS is known for its low student-teacher ratio, affordable tuition, and academic excellence in a loving, Christian community. We are committed to offering competitive tuition rates, while maintaining the low student-teacher ratios, high curriculum standards, and hands-on educational experience you expect from a private school, including student support programs with both Math and Reading. While our tuition is set at a competitive rate, DCS students may also apply for a state-funded scholarship through our partner, Pay It Forward, which is not based on income or need. In 2023, eligible students received approximately $3,000 each through Pay It Forward toward their DCS tuition. DCS also offers additional financial assistance as needed
Excellence Recognized by OUR Community
DCS is proud to announce that we were nominated in and won the 2023 “Best of Perimeter” award in three categories: Best K-12 Private School, Best After-School Programs, and Best Teacher. The “Best of Perimeter” contest is particularly meaningful because the awards are determined by many of the communities that DCS serves: the residents of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, and Brookhaven. DCS After-school programs (clubs and athletics) include cross country, swim team, soccer, cheer, and clubs for art, chess, STEM, basketball, and flag football. DCS also has the unique ability to partner with its neighbor, Dunwoody School for the Arts, to offer after-school classes such as dance, drama club, choir, piano, and more. DCS provides childcare on school days until 6:00 PM, through its exceptional “Lions’ Den” after-care program. We are humbled to have won in each category, and are grateful to the communities in North Atlanta for affirming DCS as the “Best of Perimeter!”
After an extensive search led by the DCS Head of School Search Committee, the DCS Board of Directors is pleased to introduce Dr. Kevin Jenkins as the next Head of School at Dunwoody Christian School. Dr. Jenkins is an experienced leader with a solid background in Christian education and is well-equipped to position the school for long-term success. He will be coming to us in July 2023 from Cornerstone Christian Academy in Peachtree Corners.
