At Dunham, you’ll find intentionally small classes, where a blend of traditional and innovative teaching is combined with the latest technology to ignite creativity and intellectual curiosity. You’ll discover expert teachers who treasure each child as the individual he or she was created to be, and you’ll find challenging academic, athletic, fine arts, and leadership programs that enable our students to meet their God-given potential now and in the future.
But it’s not just our college preparatory curriculum, cutting-edge technology, and innovative programs that single us out as the best private school in Baton Rouge. It’s how our faculty and students use these resources every day—collaborating, problem solving, mentoring, communicating, learning, and leading—that’s unique. And it’s the Christlike love modeled and lived out daily that creates a palpable and joyful spirit on our campus—a spirit that makes all the difference in preparing students for college and for life.

Ours is a campus set apart to worship, glorify, and serve God.
