Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Dear Dunham Community,

Based on Governor Edwards’ continuation of the stay-at-home order until May 15, and after numerous administration meetings and in consultation with the board of trustees, we have made the difficult decision to continue our distance learning model through the end of the school year. While we are disappointed that we can’t meet in person, our teachers, students, and parents continue to do an amazing job of delivering the best possible education during this time.

The start date for our summer programming is now scheduled for June 8. We are meeting with medical professionals and health experts to prepare our facilities and establish protocols to safely operate summer camp. We fully envision beginning school safely in August in face-to-face mode. We are also committed to ensuring that every family is able to return to The Dunham School, even if your personal circumstances may be uncertain. If you need help, please email me or Grady Hazel in the business office and let us know how we can assist you.

I want to thank our incredible teachers, technology staff, and division leaders. They have done a remarkable job in ensuring that Dunham families have had everything they needed to continue to operate our school at the highest level. Our staff and teachers miss our students and parents, and we can’t wait to see you again very soon—at end-of-year activities, over the summer, or as we are released from quarantine and are able to gather together safely.

I challenged the senior class to view this personal trial and stressful time as one that is building their character and preparing them for something greater. I firmly believe that God will bring our seniors and our entire school through this time as a stronger, more close-knit community of faith that continues to set the bar for Christian education in the city of Baton Rouge and across the country.

We’ve already seen the generosity of our families in providing for those who are in need of fiscal support during this time. On behalf of our entire board of trustees, faculty, staff, and administration, thank you for your prayers and your support. We look forward to serving your educational needs through the end of the school year, over the summer, and face-to-face in the new school year.

As always, may God bless you. Stay safe, and we will see you soon!

In Christ,

Steven A. Eagleton
Head of School

Past Performances

The cast and crew of Willy Wonka Jr. took us to a world of pure imagination as everyone's favorite candy-maker led a colorful cast of characters in this delightful stage adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The Upper School production of James and the Giant Peach, was performed in October on the main stage in the Brown-Holt Chapel Arts Center. Roald Dahl's classic story came to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises.

You have big dreams for your child. So do we.

If you’re dreaming of a college preparatory school that inspires students to find their voices, discover their passions, unleash their confidence, and mature in Christian faith, then you’ve come to the right place.

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 challenging academic, athletic, arts, and leadership programs designed to enable students to meet their God-given potential now and in the future.

We are eager to explore the possibility of your family joining the Dunham community. Our office would be delighted to visit and walk through the admissions process with you—in-person or virtually!

We encourage you to begin the admissions process by scheduling a campus visit. This will allow you you meet with our director of enrollment management and receive a personal tour of our facilities. If you prefer, you may schedule a virtual meeting and take a virtual tour at your leisure.

Each admissions season, we host special events that allow our prospective families to visit campus and experience life at Dunham. We invite you to take a student-led tour at an open house to learn more about our school from the student perspective or attend our Homecoming Tiger Tailgate party to meet other Dunham families and catch the Tiger spirit as we cheer our football team on to victory. Exclusive pre-show parties and complimentary tickets to one of our musicals will give you the opportunity see our fine arts program in action. At our Head of School coffee you'll have the chance to meet our administration, get your questions answered, and learn more about the heart of our school. These events and others are designed to allow you to see all that Dunham has to offer.
