Dover First Christian School

Pre K - 8th Grades Now Enrolling

Our Mission

The mission of Dover First Christian School is to provide a safe Christian learning environment that fosters and encourages the development of the whole child-cognitively, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially, and to empower them to live a Christian life of service and purpose.

Our child had developed her reading, speaking, and mathematics skills beyond the average child her age, however what has pleased us the most is her willingness to share God’s love with everyone she comes in contact with. This skill has not only developed her spiritual walk, it has challenged her to perform even better in her academics.

– Mr. Douglas Miller, Jr.

My child’s teacher can’t believe how far advanced he was coming into kindergarten this year. He scored higher than any of the charters for a child entering kindergarten. He was more than well prepared academically.

– Jessica Jernigan

My grandson will stay in Adventist education. He is performing and learning more than any of my other grandchildren have learning in public school. Socially, he went from hiding behind me, to standing at the front of the church singing and presenting various programs making him a leader for Jesus.

– Ellen Aparicio

Our Philosophy

Dover First Christian School pre-kindergarten through 8th Grade programs are highly academic and focus on teaching the whole child. We provide developmentally appropriate practices to develop the mind, body, and spiritual understanding in a loving Christ centered environment.

As experience is a marvelous teacher, we believe that children have to become involved to learn. They have to see, hear, feel, taste, and smell. Being involved in class means a lot of activity and mobility through the use of play, song, quiet times, and conversation all to develop the whole child.

We believe children need success, love, and fun as much as they need food, shelter, and clothing. Children are able to develop fully when they have a positive self image and continue to develop their overall potential. We laugh and smile everyday with the children affirming them and allowing them to understand we love, appreciate, and care for them while striving for excellence in all they accomplish.
