The DCA is an alternative, private Christian school designed for students who have been unsuccessful in the traditional classroom setting.
Our goal is to provide a safe, loving environment for students to grow and excel in their academic and spiritual lives.In many ways the DCA is similar to a typical private school, in that we provide high academic and moral standards, physically and emotionally safe environment, personalized attention and tutoring, and a low teacher to student ratio.In other ways the DCA is unlike any other private school in the nation.
The DCA believes that an affordable quality education should be available to everyone.
Additionally, the DCA created “Life-Prep” curriculum to ensure student success outside of the classroom.
This curriculum includes: Job/Life Skills and Leadership Development for each student – including regular experiential Outdoor Adventures.The DCA is accredited by the National Association of Private Schools and is a Candidate for accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.- See more at: http://www.dreamcenteracademy.org.
