Desert Christian was founded in 1986 on Tucson’s eastside as a high school and has since grown to include a second campus for Preschool to 8th grade. Today, DCS represents more than sixty area churches as Tucson’s only independent, comprehensive Preschool – 12th-grade Christian school. DCS is governed by a parent-elected Board of Trustees, staffed by licensed, qualified faculty, and is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
The Mission of Desert Christian Schools is to pursue excellence in Christian education, foster Christ-centered relationships, and endeavor to meet the unique learning needs of every student.
DCS Endeavors to Meet the Unique Learning Needs of Every Student
No child is the same or learns the same way. Because of our small class sizes and relational-style teaching, we can focus on each child’s individual needs, nurturing them as a whole person.
The DCS community provides countless opportunities for students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually to impact their world for Christ. The staff teaches and nurtures kids from PS to 12th grade, and one of the greatest highlights is that at Desert Christian, it feels like family!
It is our desire to partner with families to help disciple students so that they can succeed. DCS is an independent, inter-denominational, Christian covenant school that provides a rigorous traditional liberal arts education taught from a biblical worldview, emphasizing the Lordship of Christ in the totality of life with the desired outcome to produce excellence. Students are taught skills for thinking, communicating, and relating to the world.
Desert Christian Schools admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students. Desert Christian Schools strives to provide a solid spiritual and educational foundation to all children from Preschool through 12th grade.
Church attendance and reference forms are required of all applicants. One parent/guardian must be a practicing believer in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
