Open Houses

Dayspring Christian Academy hosts two open houses every year. In February, we have our preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten open house. At this event, parents and their children meet the teachers, ask questions, and see the classrooms. This event typically lasts for one hour. In March, our all school open house takes place. Parents will hear for themselves the unique way we teach with classroom demonstrations, meet the teachers, visit our project fair, and have the opportunity to get their questions answered. This event can be self-guided or experienced through a guided tour.

Personal Tours

Dayspring Christian Academy offers private tours at times that work best for you. Parents may register for a private tour anytime during the year. Tours typically last 45 minutes to 1 hour and are tailored to individual needs and interest. To fully experience Dayspring, we do recommend parents take a tour during the school day to see our teachers and students in action. Additionally, parents may desire to have their student experience a school day through our student visitation days. We hold student visitation days in the fall and in the spring, but visitations may be scheduled other times throughout the year as well.

“Dayspring Christian Academy has been a wonderful school for my child to learn and grow within a supportive atmosphere. The Principal Approach has gone a long way in helping my child learn in a way that teaches independent thinking and logical reasoning. I am so impressed with their dedication and commitment to our children.”

~Alexandra, longtime Dayspring parent


“The education experience has been wonderful. Our son has grown not only as a scholar, but also in his Christian faith. His ability to defend what he believes continues to develop. We love the family atmosphere and the friendships. We appreciate the teachers willingness to focus on each child and encourage them to reach for more.”

~Greg, longtime Dayspring parent
