When you choose DC, our ministry-minded teachers and smaller class sizes mean that your children will get the individual attention needed both academically and socially as they are entering a new environment in the middle of the term.
Denver Christian students are invested in community, both enfolded within and actively involved in building Christian community wherever they live, work, and worship. Academically, students understand the value of participating in focused, dynamic, supportive learning communities, and they work hard to create and nurture such communities in classrooms and extra-curricular activities. Spiritually, students recognize their responsibility to encourage others with humility and love, and to forge and sustain relationships that glorify God by reflecting and celebrating His love and joy.
