Welcome from the Head of School

My name is Dan Beckering, and I am the head of school at Southwest Christian High School. As a teacher, coach, discipleship group leader, and head of school, I have had the privilege and honor of being a part of God’s work at Southwest Christian since 2001. Each year, my passion for the school’s vision, my deep affection for the students, faculty and families, and my amazement at God’s faithful provision for our school continues to grow. Southwest Christian High School is truly a unique and wonderful community where students are equipped to become effective ambassadors for Christ and to glorify God wherever they go and in whatever they do.

Southwest Christian High School offers a rigorous, college preparatory, Christ-centered education. As a discipleship school, we are intentional about helping each student develop a biblical worldview that shapes them intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and physically through a variety of curricular and co-curricular opportunities. We have a remarkable faculty of skilled professionals who are committed followers of Jesus Christ. Each member of our faculty provides caring and nurturing environments where every student is valued for who they are and equipped to “seek, know, live, and proclaim the Truth” of Christ in their life beyond high school.

If you are a prospective Southwest Christian family, I am eager to meet you and share more about the exciting things happening in the lives of our students and alumni. I encourage you to continue exploring our website and to contact our director of admissions for more information to set up a campus visit.

In Christ,

Dan Beckering
Head of School

What our Alumni Are Saying

"Being an athlete at Southwest changed the way I played sports. The great coaches who strive for excellence, while encouraging athletes to glorify Christ through their actions, really helped launch me into a successful career playing at the collegiate level. As a current coach, I will always remember the mentorship I received at Southwest and can teach those same values to my athletes."
