Denver Christian School understands that one of the most critical influences to a faith that will last a lifetime is the opportunity to have strong relationships with believing adults. At Denver Christian, spiritual development goes beyond biblical teachings; our Christ-centered approach to education is about development of the whole child. Students learn to encourage each other’s walk in their faith and appreciate each other’s God-given talents. Mentorship opportunities flow from our Faith Families where students are mentored and learn to mentor others. Parents support the efforts of the school, its teachers, staff, and administration. We are a community and a family that is united under God for one purpose…. To bring God glory in all that we do.
We care about developing your student’s faith and encouraging a meaningful and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. Imagine your elementary child, known and loved as a unique and precious child of God, hearing daily the good news of the gospel, celebrated and guided by caring Christian teachers.
This is your child’s faith walk at Denver Christian School.
Imagine your middle school child, growing and thriving in a unique environment, where experienced teachers guide and encourage young adolescents as they learn to live out an increasingly personal faith in an increasingly complex world, and as they work together to build a vibrant and authentic faith community.
This is faith formation at Denver Christian School.
Imagine your high school student—one day, your high school graduate. Who is that person, that child-turned-adult, ready to move on to college and life? Our goal is that your Denver Christian School graduate is thoughtful and honest about self and God, knowledgeable and wise about the world and the choices it offers, prepared to live out a personal faith and eager to increasingly participate in bringing about the change in the world that God desires.
This is the goal of spiritual development activities at Denver Christian School.
Spiritual Emphasis Theme
Each year, Denver Christian School selects a scriptural passage to explore in greater detail. The purposes of having a Spiritual Emphasis theme is to concentrate on an area of scripture, our relationship with God, and our Christian walk students have the opportunity to learn about the topic from various angles and viewpoints, and hopefully grow in their walk with God.
The spiritual emphasis them for the 2017-2018 school year is:
