Message from our Principal

Dear Desert Adventist Academy Families,
I am blessed and honored to be the NEW Principal of DAA. As principal of our school, I promise our parents a safe, faith-based, learning environment for their children beginning in Transitional Kindergarten continuing through Eighth grade. I am joined in this commitment by our amazing faculty and staff who are dedicated to each student’s success in the classroom. We partner with parents who are the primary educators of their children. Parents support us with their time, talents, and treasures for the benefit of all DAA students. Our students show their love for Christ and others by looking after one another, treating their peers with respect, doing their best every day, and caring for their greater environment. We are a community working together, valuing children and teaching values.

It is wonderful working with the DAA parents, staff, and the members of the five-church constituency made up of the Seventh-day Adventist Churches of Desert Hot Springs, Indio Spanish, Palm Desert Oasis, Palm Springs, and Palm Springs Filipino/American. Together, with God’s help, we will continue to make an already great school, an even greater school!  

May God Bless you and your families.

Jay Emery
