    When my wife and I moved to the Philadelphia suburbs from Dallas, TX, we were thrilled to discover Delaware County Christian School. Our three young children are receiving a nurturing, academically rigorous education that is rooted in a Christian worldview. It is so encouraging to me to watch their development (with ups and downs!) as whole persons and followers of Christ, and DCCS eagerly partners with us in that endeavor!

    DC provides a solid education for its students. Yet, many teachers in the high school bring their bias with them, and this has a negative effect on classroom dynamics and discussions. There are issues that need to be dealt with in regards to privilege and teachers being fair with all of their students no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. The overall mentality of the community is: close-minded and rigid. If your beliefs deviate from the majority, then you will feel a sense of exclusion that is not positive for learning or preparing for college and beyond. Much of the extracurricular emphasis is put on the athletics, and while sports are good for teens, the athletics pale in comparison to the arts at DC. More time and energy should be put into the arts, since there is talent and hard work to be celebrated in that department. All around there is work to be done.
    DC has been a fantastic investment for our family. Our children are thriving in an environment where they are truly known by their teachers, while being prepared for the rigor of college and beyond. It is truly a unique place, pursuing excellence in all things to the glory of God!
