Wonderful school!! Teachers and Administrators go above and beyond to educate and support the students. So glad that we moved from public schools.

DCA is a school where everyone that works there cares about the students and helping them succeed. I''ve never seen a school with so many people that really and truly, honestly care about the kids.
