Delaware County Christian School has shaped me into the person I am today and taught me life lessons that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. Of course, no place is perfect and DC isn't for everyone, but it has been great for me! The teachers are fantastic and truly care about every student they teach. Some have trouble finding true friends, but if you look hard enough you'll find them!

My wife and I are so thankful for Delaware County Christian School. DC provides a top-notch Christian education that puts Christ first and foremost while not sacrificing anything academically. Students are well prepared for whatever the Lord has prepared for them in college, career, family, church etc. The faculty are second to none: they're incredibly knowledgeable, gifted teachers who care deeply for their students. There's no other school in the area that I'd rather have my children attend.
I applied DC two years ago and now I was going to transfer to another school. DC was a good school, it had so many good teachers who really cared about you and your life. And I was very touched by teachers and students. However, if you want to pursue a competitive academic environment, DC is not your first choice. It only offered limited AP courses. Also, DC had a very small and tight community where you could really know each other well. What I did not like DC was the food and the sports. The sport teams in DC were not good as you thought. They did have decent players and one of the girls went to the State championships for Track&Field. But overall, it was neither good nor bad. DC did have a very diverse community which included 30 to 40 international students. They were very nice to me. I once went to their Lunar New Year Festival Event and the food was good!!!
