Developing Minds

There's room for you at DCHS!

"In a climate of large class sizes and cuts to public education I feel so blessed to be able to send my teenagers to a school where they are known as an individual and valued for who they are. This coupled with a strong academic program surrounded by a community that loves Jesus made the decision to invest in DCHS an easy one! "
