Tel: (760)365-4676
Grades: PK-12 | 70 students
Our Lady of the Desert School is a non-profit private school (K-12) certified by the Morongo Unified School District.
Most importantly, we are formed by the ancient traditions of the Catholic Church.
Thus, we offer a complete array of academic subjects that are permeated by the Faith.
The result is a well-rounded education that is firmly grounded in the complementary relationship between faith and reason.
Our Lady of the Desert School is literally an oasis of Catholic education since we exist in a location that is void of diocesan schools.
We feel privileged and honored to complete what is lacking in the Body of Christ.
So it is that Our Lady of the Desert School is entirely loyal to the perenennial and living Magisterium of the Holy Catholic Church.

School Reviews

I have sent three chrildren through this school. It is wonderful. There is a strong emphasis on character development. The rules are very strict and many of the other parents have a difficult time with this. For those who want a high quality education with a Christian emphasis this is it.
