Desert Academy is dedicated to academic and personal excellence. We provide a quality college preparatory education in a diverse school community, which values individuality and character, promotes self-confidence, and fosters global understanding.
Desert Academy’s emphasis on concurrent study of humanities, science, mathematics, physical education, and the arts provides continuity of scholarship and cultivates critical thinking skills. Through experiential learning, discussion, investigation, independent research, and writing across the curriculum, students gain competence that will sustain a lifetime of learning.
Students are encouraged to acknowledge their responsibility to themselves, their classmates, and the global community. Learning at Desert is not a means to an end, but rather, a bridge to further engagement with the world at large, and as a result, a more meaningful, thoughtful life.
