Our vision is to provide an accessible world-class, whole child, Christian education where students flourish every day in every way.  Our commitment to providing world-class learning opportunities for children to develop in the following areas:

Cognitive Growth: Growth of our student’s ability to think and learn well.

Creative and Innovative Growth: Growth of our student’s ability to use their thinking to create something original or better.  

Physical Growth: Growth of our student’s bodies as it relates to proper rest, nutrition, and exercise.  

Social and Emotional Growth: Growth of our student’s ability to empathize with others as they grow in the management of their own emotions.  

Spiritual Growth: Growth in our student’s desire to know God and His plan for their life as part of the teaching and learning process.  

Personal Growth: Growth in our student’s desire to understand their own interests, abilities, and how the development of these connects to their long-term educational success.

A Trusted Partner for Your Child’s Education

Families concerned with their children’s spiritual development as well as their academic preparation should consider a partnership with Denver Christian School.  Families sometimes believe they may sacrifice academic quality in order for their children to benefit from a distinctively Christian education. At Denver Christian School your child will receive both.  In addition to a world class education, we believe that Denver Christian will provide students with these additional advantages:
