Entrance testing for the second round of enrollment will take place on Thursday, February 11th, Tuesday, March 8th, and Thursday, May 20th. Testing typically takes an hour and a half. Please email Lisa DeBoer to register for testing.

Once we receive your application packet and fees, and you have completed the campus tour and shadow experience portion of our admissions process, our admissions team will review your student’s file and will then contact you to schedule an interview. We view education at Denver Christian as a partnership with families.  We value the interview as an opportunity to get to know your family and learn more about your student. If all admissions requirements are satisfied, the DC Admissions Office will notify the parent that the student has been accepted as a new student!

Step 6: Enroll 

Following the completion of your online application and interview, we will invite you to finalize your student’s enrollment at Denver Christian School.  Enrollment and continuous enrollment fees are non-refundable, non-transferable and do not apply to tuition.
