Overview

Overview

Denver Christian School says

Denver Christian School is a preschool-12th grade campus offering new educational opportunities. Key among them is the opportunity to fully align our curriculum, enhancing our ability to offer students a seamless, consistent, and complete PK-12 education. A single-site operational model allows us to optimize our support services, mentoring, and student-partnering programs, while the additional space enhances our current educational programs by providing significant flexible classroom and learning spaces. New programming opportunities associated with our campus includes enhanced arts and athletic programs; increased access to cultural, service, and authentic learning experiences; and expanded offerings in the areas of vocational education.

Curriculum

From preschool through 12th grade, a Denver Christian School education prepares students for college. We know that God may not call all of our graduates to attend college, but a college preparatory program (filled with critical thinking, problem solving, literacy, STEM, and the fine arts) encourages life-long learners, personal development, and active citizenship. In short, a college preparatory curriculum is the best way to inspire and equip students to engage the world … and that is our mission at DCS.

Mission Statement

This statement of Denver Christian’s mission emphasizes an important distinction in the educational choices that are available to parents as they select a school for their children. Denver Christian seeks to prepare students to be useful and effective in God’s kingdom. As we have received grace from Christ, we take up our task of communicating that grace and love to a broken world. Our mission is more than a set of words; it is at the heart of everything we do to educate children everyday.
