Our Mission

“Changing the World, One Child at a Time”

Our Mission in Educating Your Child

Desmond T. Doss Christian Academy exists to provide a quality education to all students who desire to develop a Christ-like character while pursuing excellence in spiritual, mental, social, and physical development

Our Commitment to Your Child

At Desmond T. Doss Christian Academy, we are deeply committed to the excellence in the academic, character, health, and spiritual development of your child.

Our Goal for Your Child

We recognize the infinite worth of every individual and seek to provide an atmosphere in which your child develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, attains a Christ-like character, and achieves a positive self-image.

In addition to that spiritual and emotional excellence, our mission is for your child to achieve genuine academic excellence. We promote this by maintaining the highest quality teachers, offering individualized student attention, and by challenging students to fully use their God-given intellectual capacities.

Our Extra-Curricular Activities for Your Child

Your child will enjoy hands-on projects and field trips that complement and enhance the topics your child is currently learning in the classroom.

We offer competitive cross-country and soccer teams for our 5th through 12th graders. We have a gymnastics program for all ages, and during the winter season, we take several skiing trips to Wintergreen.

In addition, your child will be encouraged to take an active interest in making the community a better place in which to live. Older students participate in community-service field trips several times throughout the school year to further the development of a Christ-like servant attitude.
