My son loves DCA and as a Christian family, we love that DCA strives to provide a biblical world view for our kids. My son has been academically challenged and is very happy with the learning process. While I love his academic success, my priority is his character. At Dayspring, I found a group of talented and caring educators who tend to both. I trust this school to have my son for 8 hours a day! They are a huge influence on him. We also support and agree with their discipline guidelines (we all sign an agreement w/ enrollment). It's our job to discipline our children but since we are not with them 24/7, I want DCA to communicate with me with my child is not meeting the standard expectations. Again, great school with great people who love what they do! We are blessed by their talents!
Christians are not perfect, but we all strive as families and staff of Dayspring to guide and educate in God's love. Our Kids still have free will and do make bad choices sometimes. We can't blame a school for that! Any issues we have had, all students have been given appropriate guidance and correction. Like any other place on this earth students will have issues. The important thing to me is that my children are using the biblical model to resolve conflict and held to that standard! I have kids at each grade level and they LOVE Dayspring, so do we as parents!
I can't say a single positive thing about this school. There is no leadership from the principal, the students are bullies and the school does not care what goes on, as long as the students are in dress code. It is not a nurturing environment and by and large I have never seen a larger gathering of non-Christians in my life. They call themselves Christian, but preach and teach hate.
Touring the school I feel in love with Dayspring and Dayspring has proved to be a safe and caring environment and above all provides a Christ centered education. My daughter loves Dayspring!
Without a doubt Best School in No Co., by far. Quality education, with an emphasis on enstilling moral values, while developing a love for Christ.
Dayspring is an awesome place for my child to learn about the world from a Christian perspective.
Both of my boys have attended Dayspring since kindergarten. Dayspring provides an academically rigorous yet nurturing environment where kids grow both academically and spiritually. The teachers truly care about the students and will pray with them and support them while still holding students to a high standard.
My daughter has attended DCA for 11 years. Dayspring provides a caring environment, Christ-centered education, academic rigor, and the teachers and staff are phenomenal!
Dayspring is a Christ Centered education that delivers a biblical world view with a rigorous curriculum that challenges my kids. There are sports, drama, music and service opportunities that have blessed my kids as well. The teachers are prepared and challenged our kids every day. My kids are loved and encouraged everyday at Dayspring. My daughter recently graduated and is attending college and she said she is more prepared for school than most of her classmates are. Both of my kids will attend all 12 grades at Dayspring and I couldn't be more pleased. Its the best investment I can make in my children.
I am truly amazed at the family loving atmosphere my child and our family feels at events for this school. The school teaches and acts upon their christian values. Academically I have no complaints, more importantly the kids and staff treat each other with love and respect, you don't find that in too many schools these days!
The teachers work with each student's strengths and celebrate their different gifts. Very encouraging environment.
Dayspring gives a "Christ-centered" education like no other. I graduated from Dayspring and have chosen to enroll my own child there after researching other schools in the area. I have found that there is no comparison with any other school spiritually or academically. The teachers care about the success and lives of each student, and that is something you can't find in some schools.
My husband and I started our son in Dayspring in 1977 and have since had him graduate plus our younger son. We have also had one granddaughter graduate plus have a granddaughter who is a senior. Our oldest son was accepted at School of Mines and our younger son tested out of the first semester of general ed classes at CSU his first year.The teachers are an extension of our home values as well as excellent teachers.
Dayspring Christian Academy, is a great Christ centered school. It is not only a school, its filled with staff , that honestly care about their students to succeed academically, and to have an important personal relationship with Jesus Christ. My son graduated last spring, and is proud to be an EAGLE !!! :)
Dayspring is Amazing! I was looking for a Pre-school for my son and never even considered Christian Education. Not only is my 4 year old reading 2nd grade books and doing simple math and spelling, but he has on several occasions mentioned that he LOVES Jesus and wants to be more like HIM! What more can parents ask for, Great Academics, Great Loving Staff, and a Great Christian Family Atmosphere, not to mention the individualized education! The staff is very willing to work with you and your student. I don't know about the past, but my experience has been stellar. My son will go here through graduation, I am glad I checked it out.
For me and my husband, the biblical worldview that my children have been immersed in day after day, culminating with the Senior Biblical Worldview Bible Class is worth every sacrifice we have had to make. Sometimes the things of this world are so overwhelming to us as parents, and even more so to kids trying to find their way. Dayspring has been one more tool we used to help equip our kids to find their way in today s information age. Has it been perfect and without challenging situations/relationships? No. But when we have kept our eyes on God - all of the challenges seem to be insignificant compared to the foundation my kids have built with the help of Dayspring teachers.
Dayspring Christian Academy delivers an unsatisfactory science class. In their science classes they teach a youn-earth account of creation without showing the old-earth account as well.
I am a student at Dayspring and I absolutely LOVE it. I have gone to public school before, and the differences between here and there are polar opposites. The teachers at DCA really do care and do everything they can to help us succeed. I haven't had one bad experience at Dayspring, and I know I am speaking for most of the student body.
I have had both of my boys in Dayspring for years. They both started in pre-k. One is now in 8th grade and the other in 4th. I have nothing but great things to say about the school. The teachers are amazing. The administration cares about every kid. The fine arts department is great, and the athletics are some of the best in the state. Go Eagles!
I highly recommend Dayspring. The teachers are caring and committed and work hard to help students in any way they can. The classes are smaller so each student receives more one on one attention. The kids are held accountable for their schoolwork as well their behavior unlike the experience we had in public schools. It is truly a blessing that my kids are able to pray and worship the Lord everyday in the classroom. Not only is the school excellent in academics, they also offer excellent sports and arts programs. I am not only a parent of Dayspring students, I am also a graduate. Sending my kids to Dayspring is truly an investment in their future.
