Desert Christian Schools would not exist without the generous support of those who give of their time, talent, and treasure. The economic challenges of being an independent, non-denominational school require additional resources to operate and grow. Desert Christian Schools' Board of Trustees, faculty, administration, and staff recognize and deeply appreciate the many ways in which our donors contribute to the life of the school - and to a bright and promising future for every DCS student.


Whether you choose to support the Annual Fund, Financial Aid, or Advertising, gifts of any size significantly impact the school community and the educational experience of every Desert Christian student.


Thank you for supporting DCS.



Annual Fund

For 33 years, Desert Christian Schools has lovingly served families with children in Preschool to 12th grade. We partner with families to raise Godly young adults who serve their world with Christ-like values. For many, it is a financial sacrifice to afford private, Christian education, so we rely on gifts from our community to keep our tuition rates as low as possible.

Your donation to our school will support our Annual Fund which bridges the gap to afford necessities that tuition doesn’t cover such as teacher needs, security, campus enhancements, technology, fine arts, skills center, athletics, and more. With so many ministries to choose from, we are grateful for your gift to our school. Thank you for helping us in our mission to disciple children to make a difference in their world!

Desert Dash

Most families send their children to Desert Christian Schools at significant financial sacrifice. The lack of resources often discourages a good number of spiritually committed, academically prepared students from attending DCS. Sometimes, unexpected or temporary financial hardship forces families to consider withdrawing from DCS. To address these circumstances, Desert Christian has established In-House Financial Aid, which offers help to families on a short-term per need basis.

In-House Financial Aid funded by the generosity of individual donors through events such as Desert Dash has helped countless parents cover the cost of tuition. We pray that the door of opportunity for Christian education is open to more households in east Tucson.
