DSA is a wonderful school. My daughter is in Elementary school now and she is very happy. The low student to teacher ratio sllows her to get the personal attention she needs to do well and to catch any issues early. The Christian environment is wonderful while being respectful to differences in belief. Communication with teachers is very efficient (via email and person to person meetings). The kids have a wide variety of extra curriculars to choose from. The extra curricular sports have room to improve but the children certainly get exposure to various activities/sports they can choose to pursue via a club. I am very happy with DSA and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a good school for their children.

We are so thankful for DSA. We have 3 children attending elementary, middle, & high school. They provide an excellent academic program with teachers who truly care about the students. 3 years ago, everyone helped our kids through a difficult transition here when we moved. DSA has a wonderful Christian culture where our children can grow, be supported, and excel. I can see it in the kids, families, teachers, staff, & the administration. Our kids get to develop skills in sports, music, drama - there's so many choices & it's all on 1 campus! I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else!

I love the class sizes at Divine Savior. My kids get the personalized attention and care that I really want for them and they also get the spiritual aspect that I think is very important. All around I''m very satisfied with their schooling.

Great school!! Our son has been in the school for two years and we are happier every day. Friendly environment with moral structure. The teachers are just amazing, who go above and beyond to make the learning experience fun. Students respect each other. The communication with the teachers is great. We know our son is receiving the education.

Divine Savior Academy is the best! Our son is very happy in his school, that is what reassures us that we made the right decision when we chose DSA for his academic and spiritual education. The academic program is outstanding, and counts with highly trained staff; and his teachers are adorable; the best! I really like the great communication inside the school and the like-family environment which is very important to us. I would highly recommend this school!!!

Placing my three daughters in DSA 5 years ago was the best decision our family could of made. My girls are so proud of their school. Not only has the Education been outstanding, but the growth in their faith and self confidence makes us so proud as parents.

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
