Desert Christian Schools is committed to keeping the cost of high-quality Christian education as low as possible. Tuition covers only 96% of the cost for each student. An additional 4% of financial support must be raised and is raised throughout the year by fundraisers, an auction, annual fund and E-Scrip.
Fundraisers: Throughout the school year special fundraisers are scheduled which help keep tuition cost down. Every family is encouraged to participate in these events. The fundraisers may include a fall gift and magazine sale, See’s Christmas candy, cookie dough, See’s Easter candy and a Jog-A-Thon/Bowl-A-Thon.

Annual Fund: By donating to the Annual Fund you will be helping DCS families by supplying financial aid when needed. Parents have enough to worry about when their hours get cut; a sickness affects a family, or a loss of a job. The children should not have to suffer by changing schools. 100% of these funds will assist families in need of financial support.
DCS Auction: We invite parents, friends, and staff to participate in the DCS auction which is held in February. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to donate items, services or money.
E-Scrip: The DCS scrip program is based on electronic scrip exclusively. This is an efficient and convenient method for DCS families to help raise funds for the school.
