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.

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:

  • A caring Christian community to belong to
  • An environment that fosters a commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus 
  • Individualized attention to each student
  • Relationships with faculty who are mature Christian role models 
  • Biblical instruction as well as classroom and community worship 
  • Preparation for a life of Christian service

“Because of the faith-based education our kids received from Denver Christian, they are more at peace in these uneasy times knowing God has a plan for them. They see how God and education are intertwined. For example, they see how God shows himself in science with his wonderful imagination and it gives them a deeper understanding for the world and its workings.”
