2020 - 21 Yearly Theme: “Let Your Light Shine”
Scripture: "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16
Each school year a theme is thoughtfully chosen based upon a passage of scripture that we believe will enhance and strengthen the culture at Delaware Christian School. The theme and scripture are then purposely and strategically woven into every aspect of our school from classroom instruction, to Bible studies, athletics, weekly chapels, and discipleship groups, to name a few.
Another important ingredient woven into our DCS culture is the what we call “The DCS Way.” This is one of our driving forces in all that we do at Delaware Christian School.
● D: Demonstrate Your Faith
● C: Care For Others More Than Yourself
● S: Study to the Best of Your Ability
The culture of DCS is very important to us.
A major focus at DCS is academic excellence with a biblical worldview. We place a high value on our students performing academically to the best of their abilities. We work to instill integrity; organizational skills; effective study skills and habits. A Biblical worldview is prevalent throughout all of our curriculum and instruction.
