I’m Andrew Riebe, Admissions Director.

I am pleased to share with you that the DCS community provides countless opportunities for students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually, in an effort to impact their world for Christ. The staff teaches and nurtures kids from PS to 12th grade and one of the greatest highlights is that at Desert Christian it feels like family!

It is our desire to partner with families in order to help disciple students so that they can succeed. DCS is an independent, inter-denominational, Christian covenant school that provides a rigorous traditional liberal arts education taught from a biblical worldview with the desired outcome to produce excellence.


"We have been a part of the Desert Christian family for 17 years. Desert Christian is not a school; it is family, in every sense of the word. We have come to look at the teachers as an extension of our family. They have more than partnered with us in discipling our kids. They have prayed over, loved on, formed a deep relationship with and taught the purest love of Jesus to our children, and for that, we can never thank them enough." - DCS Parent
