The Greater Dayton School is Ohio’s first private non-religious school exclusively for under-resourced students.

But it's also much more.

The concept, in and of itself, is new. But the school’s philosophy, methods and results aren’t merely evolutionary. They are revolutionary – a national model conceived and realized in the heart of Dayton. A model that shows what underserved kids are capable of accomplishing – not just as students, but throughout their lives – when they have access to all the resources they need to succeed.

We don’t hire. We recruit, develop and retain the country’s best and most dedicated educators. Nothing short will do. That’s why we’re actively recruiting inspiring teachers who are invested in the long-term success of the students they teach and are whole-heartedly devoted to the ultimate goal of pulling families out of generational poverty. The work won’t be easy. But it is of the utmost importance. And it will be worth it.

Our Results Chart
After just one year at the Greater Dayton School, students are more than twice as likely to be advanced in an academic subject. At the beginning of our first school year, roughly half our students were proficient or advanced in academics and fitness. Just nine months later, 83 percent were.

Situated at the confluence of the Great Miami River and the Mad River, our revolutionary state-of-the-art campus, opening in the fall of 2023, will be an iconic addition to the Dayton skyline while also offering a harmonious academic environment that provides all the necessary resources for a holistic educational experience.
