Dear Parent,

We are humbled and honored that you are considering our school for the academic and spiritual needs of your child. We know there are other options available, so when you choose to entrust your child into our care we take every step to assure that your child has a quality educational experience.

For over 40 years, we have been committed to raising our educational standards, enhancing our academic environment and preparing our students to become the Christian leaders of tomorrow. To accomplish that, we began with a solid biblical foundation and then established strong educational programs, sports activities, music, and art. All of which assure that the atmosphere on our campus remains challenging and inspiring both now and for generations to come.

We are sensitive to the financial sacrifice it takes to place your child in private school. We remain committed to providing you and your family with a reasonable and cost effective alternative to both private and public education here in the Coachella Valley. A financial commitment of that magnitude means you must be confident that this is the right school for your child. As our staff continues to strive toward the best in quality Christian education, we hope you will agree that this is the best place for your child to attend school in the 2024-2025 school year.

Now offering more to our Valley's Christian Education...

We are now taking enrollments for our Transitional Kindergarten class at Desert Chapel Christian School. We are excited to offer this class and, most importantly, start your child's education as we now get a head start in preparing the Christian leaders of tomorrow, today.

Christina Behrend
