Who We Are

DSA, founded in 2006, is an interdenominational Christian school offering a well-rounded academic program. As a Dayspring Shire, students apply Godly attributes and Christian morals in the classrooms, hallways, on courts and fields while excelling in engineering, computer science, audio engineering, theater, and much more. Dayspring is not just a school – but a family with a dedicated faculty ready to serve.


At Dayspring students are equipped with the necessary tools to pursue careers in a variety of programs beginning as early as kindergarten. Whether a student dreams of becoming a civil engineer, mathematician, attorney, surgeon, or a computer programmer – Dayspring students are provided with the background to fulfill these dreams while allowing students to become familiar with each field.

I went to DSA for my senior year of high school, but the students and staff all made me feel like I had been a part of the school's community for much longer. Each of the teachers were attentive to the specific needs of every individual student and left me with more tools for success than I could have hoped for. I will always be grateful for being able to leave high school knowing I had a group of people who were rooting for me!
Gracie - Dayspring Academy
The teachers and faculty at DSA helped me understand many challenging subject areas and explore my full potential. I am thankful to have had many unique experiences in high school that prepared me well for my future in college. Go shires!
Savannah - Dayspring Academy
I absolutely loved attending Dayspring! I was able to graduate college early because of how well Dayspring prepared me. I am forever grateful for the lifelong friends I made and the lessons I learned. #foreverashire

Drama is FUN! Theater is an opportunity available to preschool through senior year at DSA. Lower School Drama class is offered to Preschool-5th Grade students once per week.
In the Preschool through Kindergarten classes, we spend a lot of time moving! Through fun songs and actions, the children spend a lot of time using their whole body to express themselves. With a microphone in hand and a final bow, they become the "star of the show"!

In the 1st- 5th grade, the students spend time preparing for their yearly play. In each class, the students explore the script through reading different variations of the story and adapting their own dialogue. We always incorporate movement, whether through exercise or making their character come to life on stage!
In such a fast-paced world, the "world of theater" is a great place for students to slow down and learn timeless skills.
On the Dayspring stage, they are becoming confident, public speakers.

The stage is a pathway to discover a life of learning!
