Welcome to The DCS Website!

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Delavan Christian School. The school year brings excitement and a new beginning to the adventures of learning for each student and their family. The start of the school year is also an opportunity to affirm our mission “to provide for children of the Christian community quality education firmly rooted in God’s Word.” Each student is given opportunities to make full use of the abilities God has given them.  

DCS recognizes the uniqueness of each student as created in God’s image with varying gifts and talents, each one having a place and calling in God’s Kingdom. The purpose of DCS is to educate children for lives of obedience to their calling in this world as God’s image-bearers. The calling is to know God’s Word and His creation, to consecrate their lives to God, and to love each other.

Our theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Citizens of the Kingdom” following the theme that Christian Schools International (CSI) has set for their 2019 Christian Education Week. Each month we will explore scripture relating to the theme and a well known message from Matthew 6:33, Seek ye first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. We will hear from “Citizens of the Kingdom” such as local pastors and missionaries. Students, staff and family members will share about how they engage the world around them as a “Citizen of the Kingdom.” We will encourage each other with reminders of the Good News that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and the King of the Kingdom.

We are excited to offer the new 4K-Plus which extends the learning experience of 4K students whose parents choose this option, now 8:15AM-3:20PM. The 4k program encourages growth physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually through a variety of learning experiences. Letter and sounds, numbers, colors, and shapes are built on throughout the year. Bible stories, music, and art activities are discovered daily all while sharing God’s love.

As I start my first year with Delavan Christian School, I am reminded continuously how good God is by the love that has been poured out to me and my family by the DCS community. It is clear that God’s love flows deep and wide. This love flows to all the returning and new DCS families, and I pray that we share it with all those around us.

John 13:34-35​ ​A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
