School Reviews

  • Recommended August 02, 2013 - I attended K-12 at DCA and went on to double major in college and earn two Master''s Degrees. I was more than prepared for the academic rigors of college and more importantly I was prepared for life! My faith, my academic accomplishments, and the life I now live I attribute to the training I received from caring teachers that invested in me during my time as a student at DCA. Go Conquerors! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended February 28, 2012 - Best school in the desert for students Preschool through High School. I was a student 1977-1983. A parent 1994-2009. And an employee 2000-2011. No regrets!!! - Posted by Student/Alumni
