A Principle-Approach® Pre-K–12 Christian School in Lancaster County, PA
Despite the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Dayspring Christian Academy’s administration, faculty and staff continue to work hard to fulfill our commitment to providing our students with a Principle Approach education. As schools across the state shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Dayspring Christian Academy quickly transitioned to online learning for all grades.
Dayspring is not only different because of the method of education but also because of our teachers who are working to supply a Christian education while schools remain closed. We can continue to educate because of the generous support of organizations such as the Gunterberg Foundation, which provided all Upper School students with a Chromebook that is essential to our current online learning. The Women’s Giving Circle provided several teachers with document cameras that have been integral to learning as well.
While we remain hard at work educating our students, we continue praying for our nation, our leaders, and our Dayspring family.
Despite the temporary closure of our school building due to COVID-19, we continue to offer an interactive Principle Approach learning experience online. From their homes, students still are able to explore their subjects and are on track to finish out the school year on time. Our plan for ongoing online instruction is congruent with our mission and will continue to provide the exceptional learning standard that the Principle Approach methodology provides.

We certainly miss being together, but we are extremely blessed to have the technology to be able to stay in touch. Our families and classes are utilizing technology to stay in touch. In addition to our students “seeing” each other in their online classes on Zoom, our families are sharing their photos privately using Cluster, sharing their stories on social platforms such as Facebook, Facebook Groups, and Instagram, and, of course, parents and teachers are communicating to ensure student success over email.
These are unprecedented times. Yet, it is times like these that enable us to rise to the challenge and continue to serve with excellence. As schools across the state shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Dayspring Christian Academy quickly transitioned to online learning for all grades. What makes Dayspring different?
