David Brainerd Christian School
David Brainerd Christian School (DBCS) was a Christian school located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The school was named for the missionary named David Brainerd. DBCS was established in 2002 to meet the needs of students of Brainerd Baptist School, a Chattanooga elementary school. The campus consists of one middle and a high school building, gymnasium, football field and baseball and softball fields.
The David Brainerd mascot was the Wildcat.
The original middle school building was bought from the bankrupt Hamilton Christian School. The high school building and gymnasium were later built. The school closed its doors on June 9, 2009 due to low enrollment and a subprime loan of over $4 million.
