Employment Opportunities

DC’s faculty and staff members are committed and mature believers who are passionate about Christian education. Doing everything to the Glory of God, they are compelled to a level of excellence that imparts a contagious love of learning, the cultivation of critical thinking, and a desire to know God more deeply. External and internal professional development opportunities are a key component of the DC experience (more than 82% of our faculty hold advanced degrees), including a comprehensive mentoring program for new faculty. Our teachers value the opportunity to work in teams and enjoy learning from each other – iron sharpening iron. Of paramount importance for all is the opportunity to impact the lives of young people through the growth of intellect and faith, through relationships both in and out of the classroom, and the lasting bonds that develop within our distinctive community of learners.
