Student Survey

Student Survey Reminder 

Just a reminder for STUDENTS to participate in our accreditation survey. This survey is designed to gather information about students' views and attitudes about the services, activities and programs of Dominion Christian Schools.



If your student has an email address on file with DCS, an email was sent with the survey link. As needed, please encourage and assist your child through this process. We want them to know that their opinions, views and perceptions are important in making Dominion be a place where they can have a challenging learning experience, build lasting relationships, grow in maturity and faith, and find God's purpose for their lives.
