We encourage you to begin the admissions process by scheduling a campus visit that will allow you you meet with our director of enrollment management and receive a personal tour of our campus. If you prefer, you may schedule a virtual meeting and take a virtual tour at your leisure. In addition, shadow day visits for prospective Middle and Upper School students will resume on October 7 and may be scheduled by emailing our Admissions Office.
When you visit us, 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 challenging academic, athletic, arts, and leadership programs designed to enable students to meet their God-given potential now and in the future.

“At Dunham, we found a school environment with tradition, a culture with substance, and a leadership team focused on faith, kindness and professionalism. My fifth grader now has public speaking skills that adults struggle with. My four year old looks forward to the events and activities that her brother participated in. My children’s relationship with God has improved, and they have felt loved, supported, understood and challenged. And we are very blessed.”
