A Christian Preschool to 8th Grade School in Downers Grove, Illinois.

Downers Grove Christian School provides an excellent Christian education to children in Preschool through eighth grade. The school is a community of families united in their desire to train their children in the truth of God’s Word. The School Committee, consisting of members of First Baptist Church (FBC) and two non-FBC members, is elected to lead and provide oversight for the school.

DGCS exists as an extension of the Christian home. God has given Christian parents the responsibility of training and educating their children in the truth of His Word. DGCS desires to partner with parents to fulfill this God-given responsibility.
