DC Academy is a private Christian school experience coordinated by the Dream Center, Angelus Temple, the Harbor House, and DC Teen Discipleship. The primary purpose of the school was to provide a structured and supervised environment for students in the DCTD residential program to pursue their educational goals. Many of the DCTD students were behind in credits and lacking in various learning skills. DC Academy, using the curriculum provided by Alpha Omega, Switched-On Schoolhouse, allows students to work at their own individual level. The curriculum is challenging, thorough and interactive. We weave into the computer based curriculum classes that aid in writing skills, physical education and other courses that would benefit the students. We’ve seen the need to allow non-residential students to attend our school and escape the temptations and secular philosophies of the public school system. In response to this need, we’ve decided to open our school to selected students in the neighborhood as well as to students who have graduated the DCTD program and are making a transition back into their communities.
