Welcome to Deeper Life High School, Lafia campus, Nasarawa State, Nigeria.

We are a Faith-based school, one unit out of twenty-three locations present in various states in Nigeria.

In DLHS Lafia campus, every child is important and every child is raised to become a leader with distinction just like the visioner, Pastor (Dr.) W.F. Kumuyi, the Proprietor of the school and General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, worldwide. 

Our core values are Discipline, Integrity, Honesty, Holiness and Hard-work. These form the bed rock upon which the education of every student of the school is anchored and galvanized to future success. 

We are poised to produce students who are academically well-grounded, morally upright and adequately equipped as future leaders by employing the weapons of spiritual chastity, sound pedagogy and the latest technological know-how – AI and Robotics.
