Dayspring Christian Academy’s course offerings represent the rich and elevated curriculum commensurate with a Principle Approach® education. Dayspring Christian Academy is committed to continue to excel still more in every arena of our school. Our desire is to prepare our students to be lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ who are equipped to lead in their area of calling.
The foundations of Christian character and worldview are laid in young hearts as they explore the building blocks of education: math, reading, science, great works of literature, grammar, history, geography, and even the discipline of penmanship.
We believe that the middle school years are unique in the development of the child. The many changes they experience – physical, emotional, and spiritual – occur at an increasingly rapid pace. Students at this age still have a childlike curiosity about life and learning, while beginning to take on the more serious responsibilities associated with a productive and godly life.
The overall goal of this classical American Christian approach is to produce a student who has not only progressed from the rudiments of the subjects to the higher levels of understanding, but who has learned how to reason from the principles of the Bible to the concepts and issues of the subject. It is the liberating effect of the self-governed intellect combined with a heart submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ that allows the student to reach his or her fullest God-given potential.
In evaluating students, the teachers at Dayspring recognize the individuality of each student. Academic grades, while important, are to a great extent a reflection of the internal character of each student. Teachers eagerly welcome the opportunity to meet with parents, by appointment, to discuss a student’s progress.
