Bold. Distinctive. Biblical.
A Principle-Approach K-12 Christian School in Lancaster County, PA


The road to biblical excellence in scholarship and character is both challenging and inspiring, producing ennobled individuals who are prepared for “every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:17).

A Classical Education

At Dayspring, we believe that the classics add to the depth and breadth of the Principle Approach education. Students learn the classical disciplines of logic, which exercises students in the mechanics of truth and enables them to work through ideas and develop mature views.

In rhetoric, students learn to communicate persuasively to better defend their faith and position themselves as leaders wherever God may call them. Exegesis provides an explanation and interpretation of the original texts of Scripture. The generic propecia classical languages of Latin and New Testament Greek are taught.

Classical literature at every grade level provides an enriched and highly developed vocabulary.

The Dayspring Teacher

Dayspring teachers are subject experts and can, therefore, teach deep into subjects and inspire curiosity, learning, and exploration of knowledge.

As teachers in a Principle Approach curriculum, our teachers become a living curriculum and have completed extensive research in their subjects. This not only makes them excellent teachers, it gives them the expertise to teach the research process.

Additionally, teachers begin their subjects in God’s truth, which provides the context of “why” for students and reveals God’s Hand in the world around us.
