Students taking time to help another school.

Student Life at Denver Christian School means challenging, loving and supporting students as they seek to find meaning in their educational experiences.  We work hard to encourage our students to model more, each day, the life of Christ.  We promote, in our students, a sense of self understanding and whole child health.  We also help our students develop God-honoring relationships.  Overall, we seek to work together to inspire and equip DC students to engage the world with Christ’s transforming power and love.  For more information about Student Life at Denver Christian School, please contact Tyler Amidon, Director of Student Life at tamidon@denverchristian.org or 303-733-2421.

Student Culture

The goal of Student Life is to shape and develop a positive, uplifting and Christ-centered student environment and culture at DC.  This culture is one where students learn to encourage each other’s walk in their faith and appreciate each other as the unique beings that God created them to be.

Student Conduct and Discipline

Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Our focus in student conduct and discipline is on restorative practices which emphasize the importance of relationships within the school; student to student and teacher to student.  It’s about building those relationships in the DC community.  When students and teachers feel a sense of connection to each other and to the school they are both inspired to succeed in their given areas of focus.

Restorative practices are modeled after the redeeming work of Christ on the cross – through his sacrifice our relationship to God is restored.  We still suffer and hopefully learn because of our sin (ie: consequences for behavior are not avoided) but we ultimately are not separated from God because of Christ.  Restorative practices works to restore relationships between people.

Opportunities Beyond the Curriculum

In addition to its excellent academic program, Denver Christian is known for its distinctive approach to faith and learning.  While we teach Bible in our curriculum, our goal is to integrate biblical worldview into every area of our students’ school experience.  Our Discipleship program is designed to encourage and support faith development, both inside and outside the classroom.

To further enhance the educational process, Denver Christian’s extra-curricular programs provide a wide range of activities that nurture whole child development.  We offer a competitive Athletics program for sixth through twelfth grade students with a variety of fall, winter and spring sports. Fine Arts and Performing Arts programs are available during the school day for all students with deeper experiences offered after school for middle school and high school students.  Denver Christian also offers a number of in school and after School Clubs and Trips to complement the academic curriculum.

At Denver Christian School, we seek to create an environment that encourages students to explore many different kinds of extra-curricular activities by coordinating program schedules among the groups to make them compatible for students and parents.  We strive to help students explore their interests and help them develop their unique God-given gifts and talents.
