About this school

Downers Grove Christian School has been educating children in preschool through eighth grade for over 45 years. We desire to teach the academics as well as encourage the importance of having character in our lives that is based on the Word of God. Each child is loved and encouraged on a daily basis to grow physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. We assist parents in their God-given responsibility of training each child to reach his/her potential in spirit, soul, mind, and body.
