Our Philosophy

To empower students with: A set of moral values through a deep understanding and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. (These values include a selfless attitude, uncompromising integrity, honesty in all things, and dependence upon God.)

To empower students with: A skillset that allows for competition in the global marketplace, success in higher educational endeavors, and prepares one for a life of Christ-like service.

To empower students with: An enquiring and discriminating mind that allows one to pursue knowledge with a certain personal expectation of success.

To empower students with: A tolerance and respect for others which creates the partnership that exists between the home and teachers so that we can integrate the community and the part it plays in realizing this vision.

Request A Free Educational Success Consultation

As part of our commitment to the educational ministry of Dover First Christian School, we have added an important component to our Admissions process: the educational success consultation with our Principal, Angela Singh. An educational success consultation is designed to actively engage and support parents in making wise educational decisions for their children. Each and every parent inquiry begins with a scheduled educational success consultation.

Whether the parents have made the decision to choose Dover First Christian School or they are still considering their options, this consultation will focus on parent’s aspirations and goals for their child, academic preparation, planning for future choices, faith and Christian leadership development. This will also help the school in numerous ways, should they choose Dover First Christian School, to better serve their child. Both parents are encouraged to attend the consultation.
