Dayton Christian School plans Wednesday to unveil its first gymnasium.

The $3.7 million, 20,000-square-foot Warrior Center at the school’s 44-acre Miami Twp. campus is the result of a capital campaign more than two years in the making.

Originally, the school announced plans to build a 31,000-square-foot gym, but revised the plan. The change allowed the new facility to be built toward the site’s southern end, just north of the baseball field, according to plans approved by the township.

Aside from the gym, additional amenities include locker rooms, permanent bleachers, bathrooms and a Warrior Hall of Fame lobby and walkway, school officials have said.

The school will host its inaugural game on Saturday, when its varsity women’s volleyball team takes on Northridge Schools.

Dayton Christian School has more than 800 students in grades pre-K to 12th grade. It moved to its current location in 2004 when it purchased the site at Washington Church Road and Spring Valley Pike, a former NCR facility.

The school created and received approval for a campus master plan in 2013. In the past three years, officials have said the school has made major athletic improvements to its campus including a baseball field, tennis courts, softball field and started work on a three-mile, wooded cross country trail.
