2024 Faces of Greater Baton Rouge

2024 The Face of Private School Education

The Dunham School

The Dunham School has proudly served the Baton Rouge community for more than 40 years. Founded in 1981 with a mission to educate minds and hearts for Christ through a college preparatory program grounded in biblical truth, the school has experienced tremendous growth over the past four decades. Today, Dunham is recognized not only as a leader in Christian education, but also as one of the most innovative and technological advanced schools in the country.

Thanks to a longtime partnership with Apple, Inc., Dunham students have access to the latest technology as well as opportunities to engage in design thinking, coding, and engineering through the school’s robust STEM curriculum. The Harkness Method, a unique discussion-based pedagogy used in middle and high school classrooms, allows future leaders to find their voices, respectfully share opinions, and become effective communicators.

Dunham prides itself on meeting the needs of the individual student while delivering a high-quality academic program combined with competitive athletics and inspiring fine arts offerings. A wide array of extracurricular and enrichment opportunities keep students plugged in, connected, and engaged while small classes mean their teachers and coaches know them and pray for them by name.

While the immediate impact of a Dunham education is experienced daily by the students who receive personalized attention and instruction as the school works in partnership with parents to deliver the faith-based education they desire for their children, perhaps the greater impact can be seen in lives of more than 2,000 alumni who lead and serve in Baton Rouge and many other communities across the country and abroad.

Families of prospective two-year-olds through high school students are encouraged to visit the school’s website at dunhamschool.org or contact the admissions office at (225) 767-7097 ext. 324 to schedule a campus tour.
