Denver Christian is a parent run Preschool – 12th grade school serving the students of Christian families at our Lakewood campus.  Our long tradition of excellence began over 100 years ago, and today Denver Christian provides world class whole child education to over 850 students from 575 families representing over 120 Christian churches in the Denver metro area.

At Denver Christian, our mission has been and remains to inspire, equip, and engage young people to lead lives of influence and service in God’s kingdom. We accomplish this mission by:

  • Inspiring their hearts – we partner with parents and students’ faith communities to  teach and model a Christian world and life view.  Students come to Denver Christian through their parents’ faith commitment, and mature Christian teachers help shepherd and guide students to embrace their own faith and strive towards a life of discipleship and kingdom service.  Faith families and classroom communities foster a sense of belonging, and individual, classroom and whole-school worship provide a spiritual rhythm for our campus life.
  • Equipping their minds – striving for academic excellence is one of the ways we encourage students to honor God with the gifts he’s given them.  Highly qualified faculty guide students to succeed at their current level of ability and challenge them to achieve at higher levels.  Differentiated learning in all schools and many co-curricular opportunities help students explore interests in music, theater, athletics, robotics, community service, and more.   
  • Engaging in service — we are called to help our students respond to God’s love for them by serving others in school, at home, in church, and throughout the community and the world.  Denver Christian alumni build on the foundation of faith they received here to influence and build God’s kingdom across our community and around the world.  

I invite you to come and experience the Denver Christian difference. We trust you will be inspired by the breadth and depth of our educational and co-curricular opportunities, and that you will feel the joy and warmth of this community bound together by our common faith in Jesus Christ.  We welcome you to explore your place at Denver Christian School.

Sincerely yours,

Matt Covey
