DCA participates in the nationally recognized Accelerated Reader program. Accelerated Reader (AR) is the most popular and successful reading product of all time. AR's advanced technology helps you make essential reading practice more effective for every student; personalize reading practice to each student's current level; manage all reading activities including read to, read with, and read independently; assess students' reading with four types of quizzes: reading practice, vocabulary practice, literacy skills, and textbook quizzes; and build a lifelong love of reading and learning (http://www.renlearn.com/ar/overview/) .
Student Leadership Institute: Embracing Kingdom Education as a foundation, Student Leadership Institute trains students on key characteristics of Jesus' leadership and requires students to be actively involved in service, evangelism and church activities. In Student Leadership Institute, students are first trained in leadership theory, and then learn specific leadership skills. Finally, students are encouraged to apply their knowledge and practice their leadership potential by serving their school, family, community and church. (visit www.studentleadershipinstitute.org/ for detailed information about this National program.)
Field Trips: Each K3-12th grade class enjoys several fun, action-packed field trips during the year. Teachers are encouraged to use the field trips as an extension of their classrooms. In the past, students have enjoyed trips to St. Augustine for a fun-filled, overnight adventure in one of our most historic cities. We have made trips to Wild Adventures and Legoland. Students have also visited Gainesville for drama productions, the Civil War reenactment, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings State Park in Crosscreek, FL.
Chapel Services: Our chapel services offer the students an excellent opportunity to praise and worship our Lord through songs, special presentations and guest lectures.
Food 4 Kids:This is an ongoing food drive for the Dunnellon Food-4-Kids, Inc. The purpose of the program is to fill a backpack with enough food for the weekend (3 meals/2 snacks for Saturday and Sunday) for a hungry child and his/her school age siblings in our area. The program we help sponsor currently serves Dunnellon and Romeo Elementary Schools.
Red Ribbon Week: Each year we unite and take a visible stand against substance abuse during National Red Ribbon Week. Students are given themes for each day of the week to dress up and show their support. They also participate in a poster contest and essay contest.
Fall Festival: The whole community is welcome to join DCA students and staff in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere. The Fall Festival includes fun, games, food and lots of candy. Teachers, staff and parents work to make the event a family-friendly, Christian experience for everyone.
Spirit Week: Each spring we celebrate our Eagle pride through Spirit Week by dressing up to daily themes, including our famous Blue/Gold Day! We have the opportunity to recognize our athletes with an awesome Pep Rally, complete with our DCA Cheerleaders and our very own Eagle mascot leading the excitement.
Jean Day: The 1st and 3rd Friday of each month is "Jean Day". Students pay $2.00 to wear their favorite (school appropriate) jeans with their uniform shirts or jean-day t-shirts. This SLi sponsored fundraiser is used to raise money for various service/mission programs.
Music Program:Students from K3-6th grade perform in a Christmas musical program and a spring musical program complete with music and dramatic play. The students practice for their musical as part of their weekly music class, which is taught by a separate music instructor.
4H Pot of Gold: DCA is proud to host one of the many local 4H Chapters in Marion County. 4-H is the nation's largest youth development organization. Over 230,000 members in the State of Florida help to make up the community of more than 6.5 million young people across America. 4-H is a non-formal, practical educational program for youth. Florida 4-H is the youth development program of Florida Cooperative Extension, a part of the University of Florida IFAS (www.florida4H.org).
Pennies for Patients:Students participate in raising money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by bringing in their spare change each day. Classes receive incentives for bringing in the most money.
Operation Christmas Child:Each November parents, students, faculty and friends of DCA participate in OCC through Samaritan's Purse as a way to give back during the Christmas season. Students are given an opportunity to learn about packing a shoebox full of goodies for another child, praying for the gift and for the receiver, and following their shoebox to its destination.
Dual Enrollment: DCA proudly participates with the College of Central Florida to offer dual enrollment opportunities for eligible juniors and seniors.
