Christian School Classroom Setting Programs
DCO Introduces a new online Curriculum
“Life Choices: Parental Guidance Necessary” is a resource toolkit for parents to bring God’s design and plan for abundant life to your children. It is also for Christian educators and church youth leaders to help guide this vital area of instruction with young people. This is a powerpoint download for teachers to use in the classroom that explores the choices that adolescents and young adults face and guides them to health, spiritual wholeness and sexual integrity. The curriculum provides direction as they navigate the very dangerous current cultural waters. Our goal is to convey the depth and breadth of God’s good, and beneficial and loving design of gender, marriage, sex, family and life!
Partnering with private high schools through the health education classes, DCO programs teach and equip students with success oriented skills and knowledge leading to optimal health and life outcomes. The true costs of sexual activity prior to marriage and potential outcomes of risky sexual behaviors are clearly explored: STD/STIs, pregnancy, educational, economic and relational impact. This program serves 9th/10th grade students in state mandated health classes and is taught by SRAS certified education specialists. A new online curriculum for teachers is available as a downloadable pdf for those schools that wish to teach this themselves or click below to contact us about coming to your school.
