Global Day of Student Prayer

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.

All-School Retreat
The Countdown is on...
Our annual "All School Retreat" is four weeks away. We are fast approaching our time annual time at Sharp Top Cove! October 2-4 will be here soon, so we wanted to let you know what to expect, particularly for our new families! 

We take this retreat each year with a goal of creating community within DCS as well as setting up our year with a time of worship and spiritual growth. For many students this is one of their fondest memories here at DCS. We leave the text books, homework, and city limit signs behind and focus on strengthening, building and creating relationships that often last for life.  


Sharptop Cove

We stay at Sharptop Cove in Jasper, Georgia. This is a beautiful Young Life camp facility. Our kids will stay in lodges where they will have bunk beds and nice shower and bathroom facilities. They will be grouped in those lodges by grade level. Our teachers, staff and administration will stay with the students, so they are always chaperoned. The food is prepared by the Youth Life chefs and is incredible! Your student will not come home hungry!  



Along with our great speakers and worship, we give the kid's supervised free time to use the facilities of Sharptop Cove. Also, planned class activities are organized using fun games to get everyone involved!



You will bring luggage and bed items (more on that later) on Wednesday morning, October 2. The students will be taken on large coach buses up to Sharptop Cove on Wednesday, early afternoon. We will return home mid/late morning on Friday. We will have no additional school on Friday.
