DCA provides an amazing learning environment for all age groups. Christian based. This school is leading the way. Highly recommend.



- a
Great Christian culture! The real deal. Classes are small, students are thoughtful, hard working, respectful and achievers. No bullying here. My kids started in 4th and 6th grade. Wish my oldest had started sooner than 6th grade. Elem. classes set the pace and the History and English are phenomenal. My 8th grader writes like a college student! Sports and cheer are great! Anyone can play but still competitive. Fine arts is fantastic. High schooler has won multiple awards in TAPPS competitions. Students are mostly independent at home so homeschooling portion is not difficult for parents.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying rarely happens here. The students don't accept it and if it does happen, the one doing the buying is on the outside, rather than gaining prestige for it.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree

I don't have this issue in my children but I've heard that accommodations are really made available to students needing them.

Great teachers who care. Personalized teaching, great interaction with parents.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

We have been at Calvary for 11years, and loved it! It has grown and overcome early challenges. Our oldest son was accepted into TX A&M's engineering program straight out of Calvary. (2009). He's now completed college & is a very successful construction engineer. However, the positive Christ centered atmosphere is our number one draw. It is amazing! Our second son has three years left, and he's so happy. We wouldn't change a thing.

Our experience at DCA has been outstanding. The staff and board take their positions seriously and do a great job in handling situations. Running a school is every bit as challenging as running a business and they create good balance in all facets of the program. As a product of public school, I am very pleased with the curriculum and focus on character, integrity, relationships as most important. Graduating 8th graders are more prepared than I was coming out of a local public high school. Even though running a school is like running a business, I very much appreciate that the board and staff keep priorities (the children first). A university model is not for everyone as it requires a large commitment from the parents (both financial and time). It was certainly the right choice for our family -- kids love it and do not want to attend anywhere else.
