The Greater Dayton School is Ohio’s first private non-religious elementary school exclusively dedicated to under-resourced students. But it is much more.

The concept, in and of itself, is new. But the school’s philosophy, methods and ultimately its 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.


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.
