DCD is a child-centric place! While our program instills in students the capabilities they need to succeed in secondary school and the world beyond, we take this period from 4-year-old child to 14-year-old adolescent very seriously. Our pre-K to 8 model ensures that children have the time and space to master the tasks critical to each developmental stage and each grade level, laying the foundation for what lies ahead. We have built our core pillars of Academics, Arts, Athletics, and Service Learning to create a program that not only challenges students academically but fosters their ability to manage relationships, to think innovatively, and to fuel their own health and well-being in purposeful learning.
