What is your student/teacher ratio?
Our ratio of students to teachers, including all faculty members, is 15:1. The average class size at Destiny will be around 20 students – a few classes are larger and a few are smaller. But no matter the class size, our teachers develop nurturing relationships with their students.
Do you provide college prep or AP courses at the high school level?
All courses in the high school four-year course of study are college preparatory. The emphasis in all classes is on critical thinking skills and expressing thoughts and ideas both verbally and through quality writing. Approximately 80% of our graduates go on to attend college, many receiving academic and athletic scholarships to do so. Graduates of Destiny Christian School are well prepared for college and for life.
What curriculum do you use?
In the elementary grades, the primary curriculum used is A Beka for a strong phonics foundation. All of our curriculum is chosen based on fundamentals and Biblical truth and reviewed on a five-year rotating basis, taking into account testing scores, teacher reviews, and the most recent findings in education research.
Will I be informed if my student is performing poorly in any area?
One essential component of an education at Destiny Christian School is the communication between teachers, students, and parents. One feature at the secondary level is the “pink card” every week your child’s cumulative grade in each subject will be sent home with notes as to what has contributed to that grade (missing assignments, low test scores, etc.). Our teachers welcome your calls or emails any time you have a question. PTF meetings and conferences are scheduled several times each year to display our students’ talents and skills, and to give the opportunity for face to face communication. We want to get to know you and keep you informed of how your child is doing throughout the year.
Do you have a dress code or uniforms?
We are a uniform school with exclusive uniform providers. Click here for complete information on our school uniforms.
Are you a closed or open campus?
Destiny Christian School is a closed campus. Students are not to leave campus during the school day without prior written permission from their parents. Visitors are not allowed on campus without prior written permission and without checking in at the school office and wearing a visitor’s badge while on campus. Your child’s safety is of the utmost important to us.
