The Denver Christian School Society was formed in 1916 under an incorporation document called a “constitution” and at a time in which not-for-profit organizations were called “societies.” “Denver Christian Schools” was selected as the name for the society.
Consequently, membership in the Denver Christian School Society means holding membership in a not-for-profit corporation called Denver Christian Schools.
Society members include all parents and guardians of currently enrolled students, as well as friends and supporters who are aligned with the mission and philosophy of the school and have donated to the school during the past calendar year. Members of Society are allowed and encouraged to vote in corporate governance matters reserved for members of non-profit corporations under Colorado law. Thus, for example, Society members vote for trustees and approve annual budgets.
There are currently 11 Trustees, selected from and elected by members of Society.
Denver Christian Schools has grown from its humble origins in a small building on Florida and Clarkson streets in Denver, to a three-campus system that offers an excellent pre-school through 12th grade education to more than 700 students.
Established on the basis of a “three-legged stool” concept of Christian education, Denver Christian Schools affirms a dynamic and effective partnership among the family, the church, and the school as the most Biblical and effective model of education for children of Christian parents.
Still firmly rooted in its Reformed vision of life and Christian education, Denver Christian Schools proudly, gratefully, and effectively serves students and families from more than 150 different congregations in the Denver metropolitan area.
