Head of School Welcome
Welcome to Delaware County Christian School! Through 70 years of exceptional Christ-centered education, God has faithfully worked at DC to educate students who will serve God and impact the world through biblical thought and action. We believe Colossians 1, that all things are held together in and through Jesus Christ. The American poet Robert Frost has been quoted as saying, “I am not a teacher, I am an awakener.” It is these moments of Divine Encounters in our classrooms, in the arts, and on the athletic fields which differentiate a DC education.
Our students are poised to engage a dynamic and fast-changing world through a commitment to excellence in a Christ-centered liberal arts education. Firmly rooted in Christian community, DC seeks to partner with families to see students cultivate their God-given gifts and talents, to become passionate, lifelong learners prepared to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
DC has a rich heritage of building rigorous, innovative programs in academics, the arts and athletics. Dr. Roy Lowrie, DC’s first head of school, wrote, “The Delaware County Christian School did not begin as an experiment, but as a deep conviction. Today the campus with its subsequent buildings is a multimillion-dollar property. However, DC has never been an investment in real estate, but an investment in the lives of children and young people and their parents. It remains a school for God.”
DC is a vibrant community which stands on the firm foundation of God’s faithfulness to generations past. Even greater, DC is a community which stands ready to excel today and shape tomorrow. We embrace the future and are committed to a bold vision of magnificence as we plan innovative new strides to ensure our students are prepared to thrive for Kingdom impact.
I encourage you to come for a visit, arrange a tour, and witness all the exciting things happening on campus and within the lives of our students. WE BELIEVE a DC education will influence the course of your child's entire life. I invite you to Discover DC today.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Head of School

- Given the rapidly changing landscape of education, how do you envision the future of Delaware County Christian School?
Christian education provides a holistic approach to learning that leads to a true understanding of who we are in relation to the Creator. When education is rooted in Christ, a biblical worldview pervades every aspect of the school community. Within the framework of Christian education, students learn to understand and apply their God-given gifts and talents in all aspects of learning, all to the glory of God. Finally, Christian schools are lifelong learning communities where deep, critical thinking is modeled. Students and teachers seek to be lifelong learners, willing to take risks, experiment with new ideas and techniques, and prepares them to impact the world through biblical thought and action.
