I just graduated from DCA and I loved it! DCA gave me the best high school experience possible. I was able to play for the wildcats in a softball state tournament in 2017 that I will never forget. I also got to watch a football state championship in 2018! #catsby90 On top of great athletics, DCA provided me with great teachers and coaches who encouraged me to grow in my faith everyday. I’m so excited and ready to start college as I have 16 college credit hours already completed thanks to dual enrollment at DCA! DCA is a fantastic school and a wonderful community that I am so blessed to be a part of. I highly recommend DCA to anyone who is searching for a school!

My college-age son attended DCA for 14 years & was well prepared in every way. He is excelling in his courses; knows how to study & manage time with classes, activities, & work; & can comfortably approach professors & other adults. He knows how to share & defend his faith; can disagree with someone but still respect them; listens & cares about the opinions of others; treats everyone with kindness & offers help whenever he sees a need. The persistence, aim for excellence, & fierce loyalty he learned through his coaches, teams, & fine art experiences, the love he experienced & learned to share because of his teachers, & the unshakable faith that he lives out, shares, & defends... these are the reasons he is well prepared for college & life beyond. We give God all the glory for the young man our son has become. But we are certainly thankful for the partnership of DCA faculty, coaches, & staff who poured love & great effort into our son on a daily basis for 14 years. Thank you!
We have two children at DCA as we just began our fifth year. One child started just before her second birthday. We love the continuity DCA provides as kiddos transfer from preschool into elementary, then eventually through graduation. We have loved ALL the personnel, from the preschool teachers to the administration. We've been able to get to know some faculty and see their dedication to not only our kids' education, but their discipleship as well. We highly recommend DCA!
