Denver Christian School provides opportunities for students to try new things that interest them through a variety of co-curricular clubs and activities. Some of these clubs meet before school, some are offered during the school day, and some meet after school.  Clubs that meet before or after school may include additional costs.  Some of these clubs and activities have been suspended for the 2021/2022 school year due to Covid-19, as noted below.

Calling all budding Kings and Queens to one of Colorado’s premier chess programs! With new lessons for returning students, our creative curriculum brings humor, stories, and “chessercizes” to help students apply lessons on and off the board. Chess education has been shown to help kids improve logic, math, and reading comprehension skills. Students calculate options and evaluate consequences, learning to overcome obstacles and practice visualization techniques to think ahead. Whether playing in our scholastic tourneys or with family and friends, kids love learning with PALS because we make chess FUN!
