Dayton Christian School today will hold a ceremonial groundbreaking for its gymnasium.

The school raised $3.3 million to build a 12,000-square-foot facility on nearly 44 acres at Spring Valley and Washington Church roads in Miami Twp.

The school, which has not had a gym, has a goal to raise an additional $800,000 to fund additional amenities such as wet locker rooms, permanent bleachers, bathrooms, and a Warrior Hall of Fame lobby and walkway.

Last year, the school announced plans raise $4.6 million to build a 31,000 square foot gym seating 600 at a site closer to the northern end of the property. A change approved by Miami Twp. this pas summer will allow the new gym to be built toward the site’s southern end, just north of the baseball field.
