ABOUT DALLAS CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
"Developing Strong Minds for Christ's Service"
The purpose of Dallas Christian Academy is to provide quality Seventh-day Adventist education for the children and youth of the Dallas area. This includes providing a wholesome educational environment where caring Christian adults, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, use their administrative and teaching abilities to develop the physical, mental, spiritual, and social qualities of each student. DCA seeks to provide a strong academic program that is undergirded by a vital faith in God. The school is committed to achieving this goal through well-disciplined classes that emphasize the development of habits, skills, and attitudes that will prepare our students to assume a positive role in society. Ultimately DCA’s goal is to help each student establish a personal friendship and faith relationship with our Creator and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
