Kingdom Education, the philosophy at Danville Christian Academy, focuses on bringing the home, church, and school into a partnership for the purpose of training the next generation. Kingdom Education is defined as the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child into a new identity with Christ, developing a child according to his/her specific abilities given to him by Christ, so that a child is empowered to live a life characterized by love, trust, and obedience to Christ. In keeping with that philosophy DCA considers the following:
- Families who are growing in their personal Christian walk and are involved in a local Bible-believing church. Danville Christian Academy requires that at least one parent have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Students whose academic records demonstrate proven capabilities to succeed at Danville Christian Academy. Students records are carefully evaluated during the application process. Students should be performing at or above grade level.
- Students whose recommendations show a behavioral history that matches the behavioral expectations of Danville Christian Academy. Students who have been expelled should not apply until they have completed a successful year in another school.
- The required assessment for applicants to grades 1-12 is the Math and Reading portions of the Stanford Achievement Test. You will be contacted to set a testing date upon completion of all application material.
- Applications will be accepted beginning February 28, 2017.
- Testing occurs based upon application date and information received.
- Interviews are scheduled when all required application materials are received. Applicants for grades 5-12 must attend the interview along with their parents.
- Current DCA families re-enroll the first three weeks in February.
- If an applicant is qualified to attend Danville Christian Academy but there are no spaces available in his/her grade, the applicant’s name is placed on a wait list.
- In a desire to keep current families together, Danville Christian Academy gives priority to qualified siblings of current DCA students.
