History & Founder Story

Chad & Krista WallaceDoulos Discovery School was founded in 2002 by Chad & Krista Wallace – Texas natives who had a heart for the Gospel of Jesus and for providing accesses to high-caliber Christian education to the materially poor. Their love for creation and their visionary nature allowed them to cast a vision and direction for Doulos Discovery that is both broad and deep. What has resulted is not only a school, but a revolution in the Dominican Republic.

Doulos Discovery School is unlike any other school of its kind. DDS is first and foremost a Christ-centered school that teaches from a biblical worldview foundation. As well, DDS is an Expeditionary Learning, Dominican, English immersion, college preparatory school that boasts a diverse student population of mixed socio-economic backgrounds.

In 2013, after more than a decade as the director and (and chief story-teller), Krista Wallace stepped down to continue her career State-side in Tyler, Texas where she now lives with Chad and their two daughters.
