Welcome to the K8

Thank you for your interest in Desert Christian Schools. DCS is committed to providing highly qualified teachers in the classroom and possesses a seasoned faculty of committed believers. I believe God has prepared our teachers to make an impact both today and eternally upon students at Desert Christian.

At DCS, we are focused upon providing a biblically-based traditional liberal arts curriculum. Every student is challenged to grow spiritually in their personal understanding of who God is, as well as academically, to prepare them throughout school and life.

I would like to encourage you to visit us in person so we can share with you why we love being here each day serving our Lord, Jesus Christ. You are welcome to call to find out more about our school or arrange a tour. I would love to meet with you and show you around our campus. Parents who are interested in admissions for the current school year (2015-2016) can contact me by phone or email before beginning the process.

Please call our office if you have questions. We look forward to meeting you.
