The guiding hand of God marks the history of Dillon Christian School. In the spring of 1991, several members of the community met, sharing a dream - a school that would provide a solid Christian education.
Through prayer and God’s provision, Dillon Christian School became a reality in the fall of 1991 with 22 students enrolled. In years since, enrollment has grown to over 325 students in grades K5-12. The DCS campus is located on a 35-acre site on Commerce Drive in Dillon, South Carolina.
Dillon Christian School is a ministry of the First Presbyterian Church of Dillon, S.C. Dillon Christian School is a member of and is accredited by the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA). SCISA offers numerous benefits to our students, parents, staff members, and board members.
Dillon Christian School is also accredited by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED.

CORE VALUES OF DILLON CHRISTIAN
We strive to integrate biblical truth and the character of God into all education at DCS. We believe that God is absolute truth and is the final authority in all matters of life. We believe that the Word of God is the standard for all decisions.
We believe that each individual, being created in the image of God, is of supreme worth and is created for the purpose of glorifying God. We value integrity in all relationships as we demonstrate communication, obedience, and accountability, as well as mercy and forgiveness.
A PERSONAL, ACTIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST
We desire that each student have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment where students and staff members can actively grow in their faith.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE WHOLE PERSON
We value each student as a unique creation by God, and our mission is to equip each student academically, spiritually, socially, and physically to his/her fullest potential. We desire that each student will love and pursue truth, live honorably, think critically, communicate persuasively, and be physically active.
We endeavor to provide opportunities for every student to use his/her unique, God-given gifts.
We provide teachers who see their role as helping each student reach his/her full potential. Our curriculum is designed to provide an education that is comprehensive and challenging. Students are taught to think critically in the context of a biblical worldview.
BUILDING OF COMMUNITY
We believe that God holds parents responsible for the education of their children. We seek to glorify God by partnering with families and Bible-believing churches in educating future generations through a Christ-centered approach to teaching and learning.
DCS holds a sacred trust to partner with parents, churches, and the Holy Spirit in molding the lives of its students from a Christ-centered perspective.
Our goal is to prepare our students to be servant leaders in the world. Characteristics of a servant leader include exercising humility over pride, taking time to listen rather than being judgmental and modeling behavior versus demanding it.
We desire that our student leaders be equipped with a strong biblical faith, moral courage, spiritual discernment, and academic integrity to impact society for Christ. We desire that our students take action in fulfilling the Great Commission by challenging them with opportunities to serve locally, regionally, and overseas.
