Knightly News
The DCS Knightly News is a weekly communication letter to our school families in order to keep them informed of upcoming Dominion Christian news and events... 

The 21 Day Annual Fund Blitz began Friday, March 7th! 



Every year, a huge portion of Dominion's primary fundraising campaign is our Annual Fund drive. This campaign is held to help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual costs to produce amazing educational, extracurricular, and spiritual experiences for the students of our school.


This year's goal:   "Restore, Refresh, Revise Dominion Christian Facilities"

  • Paint Exterior of Buildings
  • New Front Entrance Landscape/Hardscape
  • Parking lot improvements (reseal, stripe, etc.)

This year YOU have a very special opportunity to help our school. Thank you in advance for helping us, and most importantly for sharing your children with the staff and administration of Dominion Christian! Watch our Knightly News for continual updates and progress!

Joe Bradley, Headmaster

Day of Prayer

On Tuesday, April 8, Dominion will be open all day for Dominion parents to come to the Media Center and spend some time in prayer for the school, the students, faculty and staff.


The room will be set aside only for prayer that entire school day. There will be prayer guides in the room, a journal for you to contribute to if you like. You can pray alone, or have a prayer partner with you. If you would like to prayer walk the campus or halls while the students are in their classes, feel free to do so.

Prayer is the most important resource for our school. Without it we will not prosper, we will not be a God-honoring institution. Please come and invest in the future of your child, the school, and the Kingdom of God.

High School Rangers

Sea Kayaking with Rangers


Come spend an afternoon with us in the wilds of Georgia's barrier island coastline. Our primary paddling destination, Little Tybee Island, is an undeveloped State Heritage Site that provides a unique opportunity for great paddling at every level in a safe and challenging environment. The tide dictates exactly where we will go for the day - paddling deep in the estuary at high tide or more out to the sandbars and beaches of the barrier islands at low tide.  


We will paddle past the Lazaretto Creek marina, where shrimp boats and ocean treasure seekers alike are often moored, to the Cockspur Lighthouse on the south channel of the Savannah River. This is a great vantage point for watching cargo ships bound for Savannah, a place with an amazing amount of wildlife. All excursions have access to beautiful flat water routes in our protected estuary zone. With its warm water, its varied terrain, and its lonely beauty, this area gives us the perfect combination for paddling and hiking."


We also plan on spending two nights camping at Skidaway Island State Park located near Savannah, Georgia.


May 1-3, 2014, Savannah, GA 


$120 per person, Forms & Money due Thursday, March 27th.
