Denver Christian School is Born
Forty families came together in 1916 with the belief that meaningful and effective Christian education in children’s lives must involve consistent messaging between home, church, and school. For greatest impact, every influence in a child’s life must communicate that we belong to God, are loved, are unique and have a purpose. Today Denver Christian has more than 100 churches represented in its student body, but this approach to Christian education still holds true.
Mediocrity is not an Option
Excellence in academics is a value of Denver Christian School. Highly qualified teachers provide challenging, inspiring, and nurturing environments. Students consistently score one to three levels above state and national averages in standardized test scores. More than 99% of the high school students graduate and approximately 95% go on to some form of higher education. Denver Christian students have been accepted to more than 250 different colleges across the globe.
Colossians 3:23-24 “In whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Integrated Curriculum Explores God in All Things
Bible is a distinct curricular component, and a Biblical worldview is explored in every subject. Walk the halls and see the students’ exploration of God’s hand in math, science, biology, geography, art, music, computer science, chemistry, and English. The Reformed perspective of Denver Christian School means every square inch of the creation is the Lord’s. One cannot look at a subject without seeing God in it. Denver Christian does not shy away from difficult current events but looks at them through the lens of God’s redeeming love. By the time students leave Denver Christian, they have developed the ability to think critically about critical issues.
Denver Christian School understands that one of the most critical influences to a faith that will last a lifetime is the opportunity to have strong relationships with believing adults. At Denver Christian, adults walk with students and before students, acknowledging the world’s pain, recognizing our own brokenness, and working to proclaim the salvation that God offers in Jesus Christ. Students are mentored and learn to mentor others in faith families. Parents support the efforts of the school, its teachers, staff, and administration. We are a community and a family that is united under God for one purpose…. To bring God glory in all that we do.
Extra-Curricular Programs Open to All
