Dr. Toby A. Travis, DCS Headmaster

Welcome to Desert Christian Schools (DCS)!

It is my privilege and joy to serve as the Headmaster of this amazing school, which has effectively served the Christian community in Tucson for over thirty years. DCS is committed to:

  • Discipling Students to impact their world.

  • Partnering with Parents in the education and healthy development of their children.

  • Providing a Traditional Liberal Arts Education that recognizes the unique aspirations, needs, and learning styles of individual students, and…

  • Integrating a Biblical Worldview into all that we do.

As Headmaster, my passion for leading our schools is threefold:

  1. To provide an Authentic Christian Education, which fosters critical thinking skills; ensuring that we integrate the Biblical directive to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind” (Luke 10:27) into every area of the school.

  2. To provide a World-class Educational Experience; founded on research-based best practices.

  3. To provide a Student-centered Approach to learning; recognizing and affirming the unique aspirations, needs, and learning-styles of individual students.

In addition, here at DCS we process all that we do through the values of SAFETY, HONOR, INTEGRITY, and LOVE. We take these core values seriously and they are modeled by our teachers, our coaches, our volunteers, and our administration.

If the above commitments, passions, and values resonate with you, then we invite you to partner with us here at Desert Christian Schools.
