Desert Christian is an exceptional school. I am thankful that my children have such caring teachers who are godly role models. My older children have all received academic scholarships and were well-prepared for college and life beyond. Can't say enough about how great it is at DCS.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
