Please take a moment and read our Admissions Policy, Mission, Purpose & Core Values and Statement of Faith. Among other things, we require that at least on parent/legal guardian is a born-again believer, that an applying family is involved in a Bible-teaching church, and that the applying student is in good behavior and academic standing. Please know that we make our admissions decisions carefully with the end goal of making sure that your family is served well within the walls of DCS.
