Why Denver Christian School?

Parents select Denver Christian School for a variety of reasons. In addition to providing a high quality faith-based education, parents describe these distinctive elements of the DC experience: 


1. A tradition of excellence – Denver Christian, as a covenantal Christian school, has been partnering with Christian families in the Denver metro area to educate and challenge young people for a life of Christian service since 1916.

2. Biblically discerning – Our purpose at Denver Christian School is to inspire and equip our students to serve God and love others.  DC is founded on a Christian worldview that’s woven throughout every classroom, fine arts performance, service project, and sporting event.  

3. Community focused – Meaningful relationships developed within a Christian context help students mature in their faith and develop confidence to discover God’s world and their place in it.  We care for each other here at Denver Christian, and cultivate a culture of belonging for all students.
