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.
At Southwest Christian we believe the high school years are highly significant in shaping young lives. We assist students in developing a Christian worldview that will guide them into the future—a worldview that contrasts dramatically with the secular culture of our day. A strong academic program promotes both the learning of intellectual content and the understanding of its importance in God’s overall purpose.
Southwest Christian also provides a caring environment in which every student is known and valued. Small class sizes, Christ-centered teachers, discipleship groups, and a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities help students grow as mature disciples.
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. If you are ready to apply, a great place to start is our Admissions Process page.
