All three of my kids attended and graduated from DCS. They excelled academically, participated in sports and theater arts, and were taught by godly staff throughout their years. Each went on to private universities with plenty of academic scholarships making these years financially bearable, especially since they were all in college at the same time (Fr, Jr. Sr). If I had to do it all over again, I'd make the same decision! #Godsgotthis.

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.
