I only wish we had found this school earlier. Great nurturing fun environment. Perfect fit for our family. After 3 years in FFX Co, my kids couldn't wait to move to DCS because of the intimate size and philosophy. The transition was sometimes difficult because of the different curriculum, but they know

DCS is adding 12th grade for the 2012-13 school year completing the K-12 classical Christian school. Next fall, we will start our 12th year at the school (we have three children...one in each stage of the model... grammar, logic and rhetoric) and could not be more pleased. My husband and I grieve that

God's hand of blessing has been upon this school and our children are receiving a supurb education which is reflected not only in their national test scores but in their character. The financial sacrifice (although this school is considerably less than most) will reap eternal rewards for generations to come! Read less

I have some insight on DCS vs. Fairfax public schools because we have attended both. DCS is a warm, nuturing enviroment made up of families that care about each others kids. The teachers are such great role models for the kids and the kids enjoy the experiences DCS provides. They learn a tremendous
... Read more amount of knowledge with the guidence of patient educated teachers. The leadership at this school is unbelievable. The principal forms a relationship with each child and family. They want what is best for your child and will communicate this throughout the year so your child has a positive growth experience at school. The education is top notch. In answer to a previous review about teaching to the test and catering to wealthy families-I would totally disagree! I actually have to say wealth among families never came up. The families there have their priorities straight. Read less

My family has been involved with DCS for nine years, and we truly love this school. The Classical model, high educational standards and a strong sense of community are definite distinctives of DCS. We love the Head of School and teachers here. The school's campus is a beautiful place that our three

. . . It also is worth addressing thr prior poster s other comment that the school caters to wealthy families. I am sorry they have that perception and I am not sure of the basis for such a statement. The school has almost 70 families of varying backgrounds and economic means. The tuition charged

I have found the faculty and other parents to be humble and sincere. In short, while no school can be all things to all people, for anyone looking for a sound Christian school with excellent academics in a warm environment, we heartily recommend Dominion. Read less

After interviewing nearly a dozen schools, researching, talking to numerous NoVa parents, we chose DCS. After 5 years, it has been wonderful for both parents and children.

The leadership is professional, has high expectations, yet is loving and caring with each child. The Classical Model has yielded fantastic result in our children, obvious when they are among their peers. Lastly, the Christ-centered focus of a Christian world view has given my children the tools to make well-formed decisions and arguments regarding Truth, when confronted by the hostile and anti-Christian secular world. Thank you DCS!!! Read less

The 'parent' who stated that my views of the school were inaccurate and doubts that I am a parent is just plain offensive. How can a parent be so blind as to not see the volume of worksheets sent home every week in the children's folders is beyond me. Obviously this parent doesn't even look at the

As the mother of a rising 8th, 5th and 2nd grader, I am entering my ninth year at DCS. I believe the review commenting on worksheets to be inaccurate and doubt that it was submitted by a parent. DCS promotes a love for my Lord, character development, and an unparalleled educational experience. The
