Dream Center Academy

  • 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.
