Now Enrolling Pre-K Through 8th Grade
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.)

  • 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.

  • An enquiring and discriminating mind that allows one to pursue knowledge with a certain personal expectation of success.

  • 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.
Our Mission
Shining for Jesus. Lighting the Way!

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, Chelsea Calhoun. 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.
