School Reviews

My daughter has attended Dayspring Christian Academy for 11 years. Dayspring provides a caring environment, Christ-centered education, academic rigor, and the teachers & staff are phenomenal! We are so proud of the young woman our daughter has become.

I just want to say that Dayspring has been a blessing to our family, our sons self esteem has blossomed since being here, the teachers and well the entire staff really has been so positive and welcoming. I finally feel like our son is going to get the best education along with real christian values!

Dayspring gives a "Christ-centered" education like no other. I graduated from Dayspring and have chosen to enroll my own child there after researching other schools in the area. I have found that there is no comparison with any other school spiritually or academically. The teachers care about the success and lives of each student, and that is something you can''t find in some schools.

Another Great year at Dayspring! We are so blessed to have this school. My husband has been offered jobs away and we will NOT take them because we will LOVE this school! Absolutely worth every penny!

I love Dayspring!! I am a mother that was so tired (and scared to be honest) of the public school system. I didn''t even know Dayspring was an option until a friend told me about it. No Common Core Curriculum to deal with and best of all my kids LOVE school, now! When they are happy, I am Happy! We should have come sooner, high academics and most of all they love my children and my children are loving others! It truly is like a family.

This school is the Best Private Christian in Northern Colorado, and we have been a part of three, over the years! All my three boys were reading in Pre School! and not to mention the Godly Character that has been fostered through the years. It is a blessing to know that the school is instilling in my boys the same Godly values that God and I want in them. It is worth every penny!
