About DMCS

At Des Moines Christian School, our mission is to equip minds and nurture hearts to impact the world for Jesus Christ.

This mission has been going strong in Central Iowa for more than 70 years and currently impacts more than 1,150 students each day. We integrate our mission into every aspect of our school--academics, athletics, fine arts, leadership development, and service.

By the grace of God, and in partnership with our parents, our goal is to see our children grow during their experience at Des Moines Christian School and throughout their adult lives. We are committed to nurturing graduates who are:
  • Servant-Hearted Leaders
  • Critical Thinkers and Effective Communicators
  • Accomplished Learners
  • Passionate Apprentices of Christ
