Delmarva Christian High School

Delmarva Christian High School is a school that is moving forward and mission-driven.The school is strongly committed to partnering with parents and endeavoring to mature young people to be biblically minded, well educated, critical thinkers as they seek to discover God’s will for their lives. By hearing biblical truth in all areas of study, students learn to think with Christian discernment forming their own Christ-centered beliefs and convictions.

Moreover, DCHS students develop the tools for lifelong learning and the spiritual disciplines that will prepare them to excel beyond high school.

Focusing on the motto, A Higher Standard, DCHS continues to challenge the staff and students to put forth their best efforts toward each other and, more importantly, “unto the Lord.”

Accountability and positive student/teacher relationships are contributing factors to student success at DCHS, and it is understood that the sacrifices made for Christian education demand everyone to strive for excellence spiritually, academically, and physically.

Admissions Process

Step 1: Campus Visit

We encourage interested families to schedule a visit. We can meet with you and give you a tour of the school—your student can spend a day with us shadowing a student and sitting in on classes—you may attend one of our weekly Wednesday morning chapel services—or you may attend one of our open houses which may include one of our monthly Second Wednesday Open House Tours. Visiting is the best way to absorb both the spiritual and academic atmosphere of our school. Since we operate on a semester block schedule, students may begin their high school career with us at the beginning of, or midway through, the school year; therefore, applications are accepted throughout the year. To make an appointment for a Tour and visit, please call (302) 856-4040 or click HERE. If you have a student who would like to participate in our Shadow-For-A-Day program, please register HERE.

Step 2: Apply

You are welcome to apply online by clicking here or downloading an application for print by clicking here. Please prayerfully take the time as you fill out the Student Application with your student. Please refer to the following checklist of items to ensure that your application is complete:

  • Transcript and/or most current report card
  • Test scores (including special evaluations and I.E.P.s)
  • Shot record
  • Birth certificate
  • Non-refundable application fee

Step 3: Preliminary Review

The DCHS administration will review the completed application and schedule an interview appointment once all items are received. A DCHS staff member will contact you to set up the interview time.

Step 4: Interviews and Testing

The hour-long interview includes the prospective student(s) and parents/guardians. The interview is a time for us to get to know the families we serve, and provide an opportunity to focus on the school’s programs, philosophy, and expectations. Please understand that since the school interviews all students, flexibility in setting an appointment time is appreciated. Assessments are given to all incoming students with most tests occurring during the New Student Orientation scheduled in early June. For interviews taking place after the June Orientation, testing may occur immediately following the interview. Our desire is to ensure success for all of our DCHS students; therefore, assessments are necessary for proper course placement.

Step 5: Final Decision

DCHS administrators make decisions concerning enrollment as a team. Therefore, the final decision may take several days after the interview/testing appointment to allow for the administrators to communicate with each other. Providing all information is complete, you can expect to hear from the Director of Admissions & Marketing by phone concerning the final decision.

In making its decisions, the administrative team will consider such issues as:

  • Is DCHS able to meet the student’s academic, social and physical needs?
  • Are the student’s parents supportive of the school’s Christ-centered philosophy so that a partnership with the school can develop?
  • Is the student under his or her parents’ authority and willing to follow the school’s lifestyle guidelines?
  • Does the student desire to attend DCHS?

Step 6: Acceptance Letter

Within two weeks of the telephone call offering enrollment, an Acceptance Letter will be mailed to you to confirm enrollment.  Information concerning the New Student Orientation will also be included with the letter. Students accepted after the New Student Orientation will receive a new student packet containing further information and forms that will need to be completed before the student begins school at DCHS.
