OPINFO is an opportunity for prospective candidates to the United States Naval Academy to ask questions of a midshipman that is currently attending the academy.  


1/C Ehrhart, the midshipman assigned to your region, is a senior quantitative economics major and he is also the 5th Company Commander. OPINFO is an excellent time to ask any questions students might have about the academy ranging from admission tips to what life is like at the academy and what it means to be a midshipman.  1/C Ehrhart is qualified and happy to answer any and all questions pertaining to life at the academy and what it means to be a member of the United States Navy.

Thanksgiving Project


Thanksgiving is a time to give God thanks for our many blessings throughout the year. It is also a time for us to be a blessing to others. A time for us to become "self-less". A time to truly become the hands and feet of Jesus. The Outreach Club is starting a new tradition for Dominion Christian School by feeding struggling families for Thanksgiving.


Dominion Christian School will supply food to 40 families of Hayes Elementary School on Thursday, Nov 21. Boxes containing a thanksgiving dinner will be distributed to these families during the day.


To achieve success in this endeavor, we would love to have every family that is able to help . This can be done by signing up to bring in a food product (or 40!) on Sign Up Genius. Log on to:


Thank you in advance for giving and sharing God's love.  



Let you light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven (Matt 5:16)
