People who care about me

"There are people here who care about me. There is a love that exists between us regardless of our nationality. My host dad drove me to the bus stop every morning. I got encouragement from teachers. My classmates explained English words to me. Those all are [expressions of] love. Every student is valued here, and everyone is treated equally. I appreciate that I had an opportunity to study in such a peaceful and joyful place, and to be surrounded by many wonderful and friendly people. I love Dock."

—Fiona Li '12

An answer to prayer

"Every night part of my prayer is for God to guide my family down the path that best allows each one of us to be the person God created us to be. There is no question that my prayers have been answered at Dock."

— Melissa Godfrey, EC-Grade 8 parent

College acceptance

"With my education at Dock I was able to be accepted at all of the colleges I applied to, and to feel good about myself for that accomplishment. I was able to fly past my goals and succeed in all of my classes, while still having a social life and maintaining a good job. Without the help of the teachers, counselors, and staff at Dock I would never be where I am. They kept me motivated to do my best, and encouraged me to never give up."

—Darren Bryant '12

Teachers give the gift of time

"Mr. Gehman gave me his cell number and told me I could call him any time to go over what I needed help with. Despite his full time job and a family at home, he offered to tutor me in the precious little spare time he had! I am years removed from his class, yet he still cared enough to offer me his time. That gesture still stands out to me."

Purpose That Inspires

A warm welcome

"The first day I came here I was constantly surprised as people came up to me introducing themselves and asking if I needed help finding anything. Students and teachers constantly made me feel like I had been here forever."

Grade 9 - 12 Student

Sense of community

"I knew this was where I wanted to be. The campus surprised me. It was smaller; in one visit I sensed the community here. Upperclassmen interacted with underclassmen; that didn’t happen in public school. I admired that feeling of community."

The total student

"I am privileged to teach in an environment where children are nurtured in every aspect of development: emotional, social, intellectual, physical and spiritual. Dock provides an all-encompassing educational journey for every child."
