The fine arts curriculum of Desert Christian Schools is designed to help students develop the gifts that God has given them to glorify and serve Him. I Peter 4:10 states, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others.”


Expressing oneself effectively is vital to communicating, and relating. As part of a traditional liberal arts education, we prepare students to speak articulately and correctly. Drama and public speaking can be powerfully used for sharing God's truths. Classes in drama, musical theatre, and spring plays afford our students the opportunity to share their God-given talents to glorify Him and further discover His calling for their lives. DC High School students also learn to speak well and express their thoughts creatively through various class projects and extra-curricular offerings, such as Mock Trial and the Shakespeare Festival. At the annual DCS Speech Meet and Discipleship classes, middle schoolers are able to display their burgeoning talent for public speaking and drama as well.


Music is an integral part of Scripture as praise for God's many blessings is expressed throughout the Bible. From the preschool to the high school, Desert Christian Schools integrates biblical truth into its music offerings in order to encourage students to use music as a means to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. For example, our youngest students are introduced to scripture memorization through weekly Chapel verses set to song and music that it may be ever-impressed upon their hearts. Whether performing with hand bells, ensemble, or Christmas concert, music and singing allows students to more fully know the wonders of God, to realize His love for them, and to worship him personally.

Visual Arts

Art education at Desert Christian teaches elements and principles of art through a variety of media to explore a child's creativity. Reinforcement of learning is supported by school, and local exhibits. Artwork completed during the year may be seen displayed in classrooms, the school office and public spaces, and through contests such as the regional ASCI showcase and Arizona's Young Illustrators/Artists Competition.
