When Can I Visit

Visiting DACC’s campuses is an experience you cannot miss.

Nothing prepares you for the moment when the classroom doors swing open and you step into the Culinary Arts commercial kitchen, the fully equipped Fire Service firehouse, or the highly technical Automotive Technology diagnostics center.

In order to minimize disruption to our current students, we work closely with our partner high schools and eighth-grade counselors in our district to set up organized tours. Please check back to find out when your school will be coming to visit or view the dates below.
