Destiny Christian Academy is amazing! This school is a gem in Cobb county. My daughter graduated from DCA and excelled far above other students in middle school. I am very pleased with the leadership and staff. It has a family environment and lovingly challenges the students to be their best and live out their destiny.

We have been a part of DCA since 2008. Our daughter was two when she started. Since then, we have enrolled our middle daughter at the age of 2 and we will send our baby this fall. The teachers, staff and administration are awesome. Our girls have grown in the academic knowledge. But more importantly, is their spiritual knowledge and confidence. Ms. Howard is awesome. She was the starting point for all of our girls. We look forward to many more years at DCA.

My hubby and I have 3 little girls at Destiny. Ages 6,4 and 3. Today was the 1st day of the school year and the girls were so excited to start 2nd grade, kindergarten and Pre-K3. We L-O-V-E this schools. We became apart of the Destiny family when our oldest was 3. Our baby started last year in Pre-K2. The teachers and staff are awesome. We love them for showing so much devotion and care toward our children. You know that when you send your child here they are getting one of the best educational experiences in Atlanta.

I love DCA because they hold the students to a high standard. They are caring, loving, and they push my child to be all he can be. The staff is wonderful. They know each parent and child by first and last name. They make each student and parent feel comfortable, loved, and appreciated.

The staff has a true interest in the children, my child. The display of the love they have for Christ is real and genuine and it shows through their methods of teaching. The growth my child has accomplished and the skills she's developed since being apart of DCA January 2010 are beyond my expectations. DCA has not only been a blessing to my child, but have been a blessing to me as well and I am excited about what God is doing and what God is going to do at DCA for the students, the administrators, and the parents and families that support and apart of DCA.

DCA has been an absolute blessing for my child's educational and spiritual growth. While I met the previous principal, I never had a lot of interaction with her since she was replaced shortly after the beginning of the school year. Ms. Lee, the new principal, and all of the staff at DCA are tremendous, caring, and experienced educators. Even when there are issues to be addressed, it is always done so in a timely manner with the utmost of professionalism. I am amazed at my daughter's progress throughout this year and so very thankful for the 'family' I have in DCA. I recommend this school to everyone I know with small children.

My children have been going to DCA for two years and I absolutely love it. My four year old is reading and my six year old is excelling in every subject...all A's. I would definately recommend the school. At first the homework and overall classroom work may seem like a lot but the kids can definately handle and have proven me wrong. The administration group has done a great job and is making lots of progress.

This school is a hidden gem with high educational, spiritual, and disciplinary standards and the communication efforts of the administration has improved tremendously with more improvement anticipated.

Would not recommed. Very poor administration. The director is more of a tyrant to the staff, children and parents. Too bad the school is like this because the church is absolutely wonderful

Administration does not put the children's needs first and will not respond to parents questions or concerns. Pretty much it is her way or the highway. My son's teacher went as far as to tell a child's parent that their child had no personality. Not a school for inquistive children that ask questions. Very poor administration.
