I’m Andrew Riebe, Admissions Director
of Desert Christian Schools (DCS). I am also proud to call DCS my high school alma mater (Class of 2009) and am happy that I have returned to serve the DCS community in this capacity! Since returning to work for our schools, I am pleased to find that this community continues to provide countless opportunities for students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. The staff teaches and nurtures kids from PS to 12th grade and one of the greatest highlights of being back at Desert is that it is like coming home – DCS feels like family!
Since Desert’s beginning in 1986, DCS has been committed to providing a solid spiritual and educational foundation that encourages students to make a difference and impact their world for Christ. 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.
Desert Christian Schools admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally made available to students at the school. DCS strives to provide a solid spiritual and educational foundation to all children from preschool through 12th grade.
We have been a part of the Desert Christian family for 16 years. Our son started in Kindergarten many years ago, and our daughter is a current Junior. It didn’t take much time to realize that 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.
Our children have lifelong friends they have been with since their kindergarten year. It is reassuring that the kids they have stood beside are like-minded, God-fearing kids. As a bonus, we have also made the best friends we could have asked for. We all “do life” together. We have spent times together at class parties, chapels, birthday parties, and many many many many sporting events, to name a few. We have loved every minute at Desert Christian and thank them for changing the way we view Christian world view and Christian education. To say Desert Christian feels like family is a true authentic statement and I will be forever grateful for the time we have spent there. They are and will always be our family!
