DESERT CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL
DCHS is a College Preparatory School. We offer three diploma options that will place the student in the position to attend their college of choice upon completion of 12th grade. With the added option of AP and Dual Credit courses, a student has the ability to graduate with college credit that will save the student time and money.
The purpose of Desert Christian High School is to develop Christian leaders by:
- teaching every subject from a God-centered worldview;
- instilling strength of character and courage to obey God's Word, which will result in true prosperity and success;
- developing leadership qualities, which will allow our students to impact their world for Christ; and
- providing the opportunity for academic excellence in a college preparatory environment.
A CULTURE OF INVOLVEMENT
The adult faculty and staff of DCHS is vitally involved in the development of the whole child, spending countless hours leading efforts in athletics, leadership, discipleship, personal academic challenge and remediation. When they are not leading a club or activity they are often seen at community events or sports that feature their current or former students. This happens because these teachers and staff members are genuinely interested in the personal growth of their students and are devoting their lives to support that goal.
AN APPROACH OF ENGAGEMENT
DCHS academics are structured to engage students in learning activities that reflect the best practices and research in education. This approach keeps students motivated and interested in the learning process. The DCHS student athletics and activities program is designed to provide a rich palette of opportunities for students as they explore their interests and make choices for the future.
A COMMUNITY OF POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS
We were made for relationships, and relationships that are good create freedom, support and encouragement. Desert Christian High School strives to maintain an environment where healthy relationships between parents, students, faculty and staff provide the underpinning for growth and good things. We not only want students’ years with us to be their best so far, but we also want to teach them how to have great years ahead by managing relationships according to God’s plan.
We think that makes us pretty special, because that is how Desert Christian High School helps write life stories: one student at a time.
