Shepard Hall Welcome Center


Lead to Lasting Legacies


Estimated Cost: $2.5 Million

We offer Arizona’s brightest students the best opportunities to THRIVE.  A family’s first impression of PCDS should reflect the excellence of our programs and faculty.  One of our founding structures, the Administration building was designed for a significantly smaller institution.  As it stands, administrative offices are spread across our forty acres of property including our advancement, alumni and maintenance facilities occupying trailers at the far west-end of campus. An expanded administrative space has been a recognized need for decades, and this new facility will create updated administrative and alumni facilities, allowing for synergy among admissions, advancement and school leadership.  Further, an impressive “front door” to our exceptional campus and an alumni mentorship suite will allow excellence to be apparent from the moment a new family arrives to the times when alumni return home.

 From the welcoming handshake at the start of the day to the alumnus hosting a regional reunion, our administration works tirelessly to assure that PCDS is filled with the best teachers, students, and administrators. There are a number of naming opportunities available and your contribution to the THRIVE Campaign ensures that our mission is fulfilled as we provide a second-to-none experience for students, families, and alumni.
