COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

For the last 70 years DC has committed to the life on life impact of a Christian education. This year we made adjustments to open school on time and in person and we remained open all academic year. Key to our efforts were our web of intervention - enhanced cleaning, reduced density, face coverings, abundant outdoor space and distancing. Visit our website to see how we kept our community safe.
