How to Apply for DCA

All DCA students participate in an application process.  DCA seeks a diverse group of students who each bring a unique and valuable perspective of Gaston to the Academy.  We look for students who show some interest or spark in school and who would benefit from an encouraging, enriching and supportive academic environment. DCA seeks families who are committed to the student’s success and are willing to fully participate in the Dream Center Academy program. Our application process is outlined below:
