Deeper Life High School (DLHS), founded in September 2010, is the brain-child of the General Superintendent of The Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor (Dr.) W. F. Kumuyi, whose passion for godliness, upright leadership and moral excellence is well known. In a world where truth and moral absolutes are increasingly snubbed, Pastor Kumuyi has, in many ways, demonstrated an unflagging commitment to helping young men and women discover their purpose and moral direction in life. He is particularly concerned about grooming a new generation of future leaders with sound values and deep convictions that are rooted in God's word. It was this vision that gave rise to DLHS.
CONCEPTION OF DEEPER LIFE HIGH SCHOOL
Deeper Life High School was born out of the burden and passion of the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor Dr. W. F. Kumuyi for the salvation and complete transformation of the lives of our contemporary youths who will certainly grow up to become tomorrow's leaders. As can be easily noticed, not all the leaders today are leaders indeed. If you peep into the structure and manner of leadership in all the sectors of the economy such as politics, academics, industry, commerce, legal, security, religion, sport, health etc, you will easily discover that majority are leaders who are not led by God because their leadership is devoid of the fear of God. The General Superintendent is not comfortable with this trend because it does not portend a good future for the country, the entire world and the Church at large. An adage says: "to change the future, you must change the youth now". The young of today are the leaders of tomorrow, which means if we want tomorrow to be anything good, we must impact positively on the total psyche of today's youth who will, on the other hand, effect positive change on tomorrow's leadership. That is the mission the Deeper Life High School is out to accomplish.

The aim of all these is to produce critical thinking and Christ-honouring students who will positively and profoundly impact the larger society. The school operates a uniform curricular and co-curricular programme which focuses on cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains of the learner. The uniqueness of the school stems from its series of leadership studies which form one of the core coursework for all students. This aims at raising upright future leaders through the ideals and values of practical Christianity. Consequently, the school has zero tolerance for any act of indiscipline. Deeper Life High School is a single school with campuses spread across fifteen states of the Federation. It has a focus to cover not only all the states of Nigeria, but also all the countries of Africa and beyond.

In DLHS, there is no room for students to display affluence as this is not allowed in the school. The idea aims at giving a sense of equality to all students. To further demonstrate this, services and charges are equal to both members and non-members of the church. Our examinations are centrally organized and questions carefully selected from our question bank which is constantly contributed to by our educators from the various campuses.
For families seeking secondary education for their wards in a distinctly Christian environment characterized by rigorous academics and remarkable co-curricular programmes DLHS is certainly, the school of choice.
As the society becomes very complex, the education of youths of this nation calls for a dynamic approach to arrest the ugly trend and give the youths the kind of education that guarantees a sound future and hope for the nation. The concern for the spiritual, moral, educational and total development of the youths propelled the vision which gave birth to the mission.
DLHS maintains a Christ-centered environment where Christian principles are integrated throughout all activities. Members of staff and students are required to adhere strictly to these ideals and to the rules and regulations of the school. To sustain the glorious ethical standard for which the school is reputed, any erring member of staff or student is appropriately disciplined. Our well-trained, experienced and qualified educators support the learners to foster a feeling of positive self-worth, quality and academic excellence. We expect that our learners in the future will be able to compete nationally and internationally with their peers in a very competitive world.
Our educators implement creative and innovative teaching methods and every lesson given or conducted is supported by the usage of a clever board.
"To transform our nation by producing upright leaders of the future through high quality and sound education"
