Stephanie brings an impressive high school and college coaching resume to the MPCS athletics program. For the past six years, she has been the Head Women’s Basketball Coach and Assistant to the Sports Information Director at Berry College in Mount Berry, Georgia. Prior to her time at Berry College, she was Associate Director of Admission and Head Girls Basketball Coach at St. Pius X High School in Atlanta. While there, she led her team to three state championships, six region championships, and assisted with signing numerous student-athletes to Division I, II, and III collegiate basketball programs around the country. She began her career as a player at the University of Georgia, competing in the Final Four under Coach Andy Landers.
As a Head Women’s Basketball Coach at the collegiate level, Dunn has extensive experience with team-building, managing budgets, camps, scouting, and recruiting nationally.

She also has an understanding and appreciation for what it means to be a complete student-athlete,” Mitch Jordan, MPCS Athletic Director, said. “We want to win on the court, but most importantly, we try to develop the whole person. At the core is the student-athlete’s relationship with Christ. MPC is developing future leaders. Stephanie fully embraces this philosophy as a coach and leader.”
While at St. Pius X Catholic High School, Stephanie was the Associate Admissions Director where she recruited students from the metro Atlanta area, managed families throughout the application process, planned admissions events, served as leadership on scholarship committees and networked with college admission recruiters. In addition to admissions experience, she brings to Mount Paran Christian skill sets in the areas of development, marketing, and athletic promotions.
