Academic Testimonials

Find out what our students have to say about taking academic classes at DACC.


I chose to attend DACC full day, not only because my lab requires it, but also because the Career Center is a fresh start and full of students who all have similar interests in common. I have developed more personal relationships here at DACC than I ever did in a larger school and all of the teachers are 'high school friendly.' They know what it's like to juggle twenty different activities while doing school work on top of it all, so they are very understanding of your time. The Career Center also gives teenagers a jump start on their college or working life, which is great in today's economy! I highly recommend being part of the DACC because it changed my life and could change yours, too!

I love the academics at DACC because the teachers are outstanding and do their best to help you succeed. Students are given so many opportunities to learn and achieve their goals. I would definitely recommend academics at DACC.

At first, I was worried about being a full-day student and taking academics here, so I started the year as a half-day student. When I realized the time I would save coming full-day, I switched. I don't regret it a bit!

The teachers are so helpful . They truly care for each and every student, personally and academically. Since there are fewer students here than at my home school, it is so much easier to get help and spend one-on-one time with the teachers. The academic classes I am taking here are more challenging than the ones I took at my home school, but my grades have raised so much! I believe it is the individual help I have received from the academic teachers that makes the difference. I highly suggest students attend DACC full-day. You won't regret it, I promise.

Going to DACC full-day is great. Your classes are smaller and students get more one-on-one time with teachers.

The academic teachers at the Career Center are challenging but fun. We are always doing something new and creative. The teachers are helpful and they keep us busy! I love the fast pace of the academics at DACC - there is never a dull moment.
