A trailblazer in education

At Decatur Christian School, children learn more than the fundamentals of education. Our curriculum is infused with the love of Christ, and paired with skills children will use far after graduation day.

Decatur Christian School began in 1973 as a ministry for families in and around Decatur, Illinois. Decatur Christian School seeks to fulfill the God-given potential of each student. We now have over forty churches represented among the students and faculty. We have a rich heritage of educational experience shared around a very high value of following Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Decatur Christian seeks to nurture the God-given potential of each student by teaching excellence in academics, character, leadership and responsibility through solid principles based upon scriptural truth in order to enable students to live out their faith as servant leaders in every area of society.

Our History

Decatur Christian School began in August, 1973, as a vision of Grace Baptist Church of Decatur, IL, with the desire to provide an outstanding academic program based upon scriptural truth. Since that significant beginning, Decatur Christian has grown in enrollment, academic excellence, and ministry to the Decatur area community. In 1993, Glad Tidings Academy, a ministry of Glad Tidings Assembly of God, merged with Decatur Christian School. Following the merger, Decatur Christian became a single entity governed by a dedicated school board committed to serving the greater Decatur area and surrounding communities.
