2 Our School Academic Program Des Moines Christian School, EE-12, is independently accredited in the state of Iowa with rigorous standards through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). To maintain this accreditation, DMC is held accountable for ten standards, some of which include written curriculum, Biblical integration, financial practices, and Board governance. In addition to Christian school accreditation, DMC is licensed through DHS for Early Education and holds Special Accreditation status with the State of Iowa for Grades Special Accreditation for our Secondary program ensures we offer courses necessary for college entrance and have 80% or more of our seniors accepted to a four-year college or university. Biblical Worldview Worldview education is the foundation of a successful Christian school program. The children we are working with are not just those who need an education so they can get a job; they are those who are headed for eternity. (Jeff Meyers, Summit Ministries). At DMC, we take this call seriously and immerse our students in opportunities to live out their faith through godly relationships, ministry hours, mission trips, and classroom discussion. We seek to partner with parents to create servant leaders who think critically, discern spiritually, and act biblically. Student Support Programs Des Moines Christian offers a Talented and Gifted program (TAG), as well as a resource program for students in Grades K-12. Eligibility criteria are based on Iowa Assessment results and teacher referral. Extra-Curricular Opportunities Des Moines Christian seeks to promote the development of the whole person through a variety of programs and activities. Opportunities to participate outside the classroom give our students a chance to explore the many gifts and talents from God. Our membership in the West Central Activities Conference allows students to compete in sports, fine arts, and academic competitions. These extra-curricular opportunities are designed to help students develop Christian friendships, learn social interaction, develop leadership abilities, and glorify Christ. Des Moines Christian School claimed the title of Conference Champions in girls volleyball, girls and boys basketball, boys golf, girls track, and the academic bowl.

5 school board The Board of Directors of Des Moines Christian School is committed to a philosophy of service to God through the education of children. The objective of this philosophy is to help each child develop into a mature Christian and a contributing member of society. The Board believes that this objective can best be met through a school program that supports and works with the home and church to develop the spiritual, intellectual, physical, civic, social, and aesthetic abilities of children. The Board of Directors realizes that an effective Christian school program must be based on the truth of God s Word, the Bible, and be directed toward common needs of all children. Since all children are created in the image of God, the Board believes that the educational program of DMCS should help all children develop their unique abilities and thus be prepared to fulfill God s plan for their lives. Superintendent Mr. Glenn Vos (515) Junior High and High School Principal Jahna Duda (515) Elementary School Principal Karla Lowe (515) Early Education Department Director Monni Chittenden (515) Professional Development Goals for Des Moines Christian School follows the Iowa Professional Development Model to provide staff training centered on content, instruction, and assessment. Based on assessment results and a desire to see increased student achievement in all areas, professional development for the year is focused on increasing student engagement. The action plan to increase student engagement includes: Professional Learning Communities who design targeted interventions for struggling and advanced learners, hone instructional strategies, and discuss research-based professional practices. Professional development during staff meetings and inservice days centered on research-based instructional strategies for hands-on Science instruction, Reading skills across the curriculum, and Technology integration. Training new teachers in integration of a Biblical worldview into all subject areas. Participation in the ACSI NEXUS Live conference. Our Community Association Members Upon enrollment at Des Moines Christian School, each parent becomes an Association member who can provide valuable input to the leadership of DMC as well as vote for school board members. Full-time DMC staff members are also Association members. Parents are encouraged to attend Association meetings twice yearly. The Association represents 27 different communities and families from over 103 local churches. Volunteer Involvement Volunteers assist learning in numerous ways through tutoring, laboratory instruction, guest speakers, field trip sponsors, home room/grade level parents, classroom support, office help, special events organizers, fund raisers, and much more. Typically, volunteers help the school in some way during the year. Parent support also comes through Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF), ABC (Athletic Booster Club), and Fine Arts Boosters (FAB).
