I received an excellent education (Class of 1979) by attending and graduating from Donelson Christian from 6th grade on! With far less resources than they have now, I transitioned wonderfully to a large University, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and did well! DCA prepared me not only for higher education but for life and taught me life skills I use to this day! You want a well-rounded, well-grounded education for your student? Consider DCA! You'll be pleased, I'm sure.

Graduated from DCA and those were some of the best years of my life! I attended from 3rd grade through 12th grade! My nephews and niece now attend and love it! It was such an incredible experience! My teachers truly cared about me, I learned so much and had incredible community with the group of friends I had.
I just graduated from DCA and I loved it! DCA gave me the best high school experience possible. I was able to play for the wildcats in a softball state tournament in 2017 that I will never forget. I also got to watch a football state championship in 2018! #catsby90 On top of great athletics, DCA provided me with great teachers and coaches who encouraged me to grow in my faith everyday. I’m so excited and ready to start college as I have 16 college credit hours already completed thanks to dual enrollment at DCA! DCA is a fantastic school and a wonderful community that I am so blessed to be a part of. I highly recommend DCA to anyone who is searching for a school!
