About Us



The Dominion School, operating as Dominion Christian School, has been established for more than 25 years. We were founded in 1996 by families who wanted to provide their children with a quality independent-school education that would blend the proven methods of the classical approach, the cutting-edge advancements in contemporary math and science, and a Christ-centered worldview.  We invite you to click on the pages under "About Us" to learn more about our history, mission, and philosophy of education.


Beginning With The End in Mind

Dominion desires to instill a love of learning and, as a result, develop life-long learners. The goal is not simply to educate our students but to grow them to be engaged with the world and make a positive influence with their lives.


Student Life at Dominion

Our goal at Dominion is to encourage students to love Christ and the world He has made.  We believe that students learn as much outside the classroom about those two things as they do inside the classroom.

Biblical Worldview

Rather than programming students to think in a particular manner, we guide their exploration of the world while they are under the authority of Christian parents, teachers, and church leaders. Requiring students to engage with alternative worldviews equips them more thoroughly to transform culture for the sake of Christ in their respective callings and vocations.

Intimate Community

Dominion is an inviting community of parents, teachers, and school leaders who partner together to educate and raise children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  It’s a place where children and parents are known, where each child is urged to achieve to his or her fullest God-given potential, where a love of learning is fostered, and where children are urged to pursue Christ in all things.  


A few words from our faculty

"My friendships with students have been the most rewarding part of my job. Spending quality time with our students and graduates has been a highlight of my professional and personal life. I get a front-row ticket to what God is doing in many young people's lives."

— Lauren Shannon, Humanities Teacher and Dean of Women 

"I love that we have an intimate community that cannot be replicated in a larger school and that, as a part of my work at Dominion, I’m able to know each of my students and their families personally."

— Matt Mitchell, Head of School

"What I love most about working for Dominion is the community of believers (faculty, staff, and parents) who constantly encourage, inspire, and motivate me to train up children in the way they should go for the sake of Christ’s kingdom and our nation’s future."

— Sam Bock, Lower School Teacher
