Desert Christian Schools is an independent, inter-denominational Christian covenant school partnering with parents who desire to see their children raised up “…in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4).
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 fifty 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).
DCS offers students a rigorous traditional liberal arts education taught from a biblical worldview. A wide variety of co-curricular activities are also offered to enhance each child’s experience beyond the classroom. Our professionally certified faculty members possess a vibrant faith and are committed to discipling students while providing the finest quality Christian education. As a result, Desert Christian produces academic excellence within a caring, Christ-centered environment.
