Our Mission and Values

Our mission is to empower students to own their education by developing the academic and social skills to succeed in school and beyond. We accomplish this mission by providing high-quality summer and after-school programming. Our vision is to build generations of students who become college-and career-ready graduates and productive citizens of our community.

Our History

Dream Center Academy launched our out-of-school-time program the summer of 2017 with our first class of rising 6th graders. Each year since, a new class has joined our program. DCA students are identified as students with great academic and social potential, but, like all of us, they may face factors that could keep them from reaching their full potential. With this in mind, we purposely designed our program to serve and support our students along their journey from 6th grade to high-school graduation.  

Our Present

It would take 7 years to build our program to full capacity. We are happy to announce that at this point in time, we are there! Our fourth class of students has transitioned from middle school to high school, and we are serving 7 classes of students ranging from 6th grade to 12th.  In May our first class of students, the Class of 2024, will graduate as college-career-ready graduates. 

Now in Year 7, we are serving 175 students and their families. We are excited about our continued growth and for what the future holds for the DCA community.
