At Dunwoody Christian School, our primary focus is to provide a comprehensive education that aligns with a biblical worldview, fostering subject matter proficiency and the development of Christ-like character in every student. We value the partnership with parents, dedicating ourselves to each individual's educational and spiritual growth.
Our instructional methodology prioritizes the process of learning, promoting an environment where questioning and exploring ideas are encouraged. Critical thinking holds great importance because we believe that by seeking truth, we are, in a very real way, seeking God. “All truth is God's truth.”
We diligently select the finest subject-specific curriculum, adhering to the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the Georgia Performance Standards. Our certified Christian educators, who exemplify spiritual maturity, ensure that all classroom content is presented from a Biblical, Christian perspective.
With an unwavering commitment to Christ-centered, Biblical worldview integration of instruction, our curricula cater to students at various levels of learning. Regular evaluations of our curricula’s effectiveness allow us to maintain the highest education standards. Listed below are our current curricula.
