Enrolling at DCA

Follow these steps

Step 1:

Download the Student Application and complete the form and sign/initial both pages where indicated.  Mail the form with Application Fee  to: PO Box 986, Dacula, GA 30019.  See link below or see our Resources page for more DCA forms and links.

After submitting the application, please mail the following materials to the above address:

  • Transcript of academic curriculum with grades (required for students applying for academic classes)
  • Attendance and discipline records from current school (not applicable to home school students).
  • Recent standardized testing results
  • Three Letters of Recommendation from non-family members (required for all new applicants). Print three forms after typing your student’s name at the top.

Please request that the person completing the form, mail it directly to the address on the form.

Step 2:

Upon receipt of your application, we will contact you to schedule an interview and academic placement testing.

Step 3:

You will be notified of your application status via email after the following:

  • Interview and placement testing have been completed and reviewed
  • All required materials have been received and reviewed
  • Recommendation Letters have been received and reviewed

Step 4:

Parents of accepted students are required to complete a Declaration of Intent to Utilize a Home Study Program on the State of Georgia Department of Education website. While DCA is fully accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, it is a private academy that does not keep attendance records for students; attendance record keeping is the responsibility of the parent. DCA needs to keep a copy of the Declaration of Intent to Utilize a Home Study Program. Please print a copy of this after completing it online and turn it into the office.
