   First Christian Day School is a subsidiary of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and  has developed over the years from a preschool to a primary school to upper grades. We teach Bible based religion in our classrooms and are dedicated to service to the Lord by providing a Christian atmosphere in which children may grow and thrive.    

   The mission of First Christian Day School is to promote positive learning opportunities for each student. Those opportunities allow each student to develop academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. Students should value achievement, respect and care for others, embrace diversity, communication, responsibility and trust in God.
